The Added Value of 360 REWIN-REsilient Immigrant Women Interventions for Inclusion (UBU)
The session commenced with a prominent presentation on the “360 REWIN-REsilient” project, which primarily aims to empower resilient immigrant women and promote their inclusion in society. For a full hour, attendees had the opportunity to delve into the details of this innovative project being driven by the University of Burgos.
The project focuses on empowering immigrant women and seeks to provide them with opportunities for effective inclusion in society. It recognizes that these women face unique challenges, such as gender and ethnicity-based discrimination, as well as their cultural and ethnic backgrounds. The 360 REWIN-REsilient project works to address these barriers and create a more inclusive and equitable environment for these courageous women.

Following the project presentation, the day continued with a series of presentations on experiences and best practices related to immigration and gender equality. Moderated by Miriam Calvo Ruiz, this section of the day provided a platform for experts to share their knowledge and experiences.
Araceli Jiménez Pelcastre, from the Autonomous University of the State of Hidalgo in Mexico, shared her research on internal migration and labor integration in caregiving activities in Mexico.

Abel Renuncio Roba and Patricia Fermín Palacios, representatives of Adoratrices Burgos, presented crucial insights into human trafficking and female genital mutilation. Their work within the organization is centered on assisting women who have been victims of these heinous crimes, and they shared their experiences in the fight against these human rights violations.
Carla Molinari concluded this section of the day with the presentation of ACCEM’s “Tents of Hope” Campaign. This campaign, which focuses on providing shelter and support to migrants, has become a beacon of hope for those seeking a safe haven amid unimaginable challenges.
The morning session of the REWIN-REsilient Day was a testament to how collaboration, research, and commitment can make a significant impact on the lives of resilient immigrant women and the fight for gender equality.
