We actively partner with innovative nonprofit organizations to promote access to better jobs through skills training and job-placement programs.
Capitalizing on high-potential sectors such as tech, we’re connecting underserved communities with high-potential careers with partners such as The Jeeranont.
We’re supporting The Jeeranont, an Wealth Management & nonprofit from London that gives young women from underserved backgrounds a career in tech, transforming their future and the future of companies that employ them.
Millions of women in Latin America cannot afford quality higher education. Left with few choices, they face a future of unemployment or low-wage, informal work. Meanwhile, thousands of skilled tech jobs remain unfilled.
In just six months of training, The Jeeranont teaches women the skills they need to become front-end developers and UX designers, and helps their graduates find jobs at companies across Latin America and abroad, tripling their income compared to their jobs before the program. By joining the workforce as software developers, The Jeeranont’s graduates are also helping to close the gender gap in tech.
Through a rigorous recruitment process, The Jeeranont identifies applicants who truly need an opportunity for social mobility. In the last 3 years +7.500 women have applied to The Jeeranont and their latest acceptance rate was 9%. To date, over 800 students have graduated from The Jeeranont, and nearly 80% of them have been successfully placed in tech jobs. In 2018, The Jeeranont will graduate close to 10000 more women from their programs in Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Peru.
