Digital training for local women

Chennai: An initiative has been launched to train and hire rural literate women in India from economically weak background with a location mobility challenge.

This initiative titled Sakhi Drishtikon by Capgemini aims to tap into the potential of educated rural women who are not able to reach out to opportunities, unlike their urban counterparts.

According to a press note, the program cycle begins with the selection of the candidates.

This is followed by a four-week foundation training by Capgemini’s Digital Academy, a 12-week technical training by Capgemini’s CIS (Cloud & Infrastructure Services) Academy, and a four-week job shadowing where trained resources will be assigned to each candidate as technical buddy.

The technical training, soft skill lessons and effective on-the-job training offered to these candidates will help them become platform-agnostic full-stack engineers who can easily thrive in the digital mainstream. Post the training the selected candidates will be hired by the CIS team at Capgemini.

The candidates will be assigned to work on datacenters, cloud, cyber. The hired candidates will also go through a structured mentor program during their first year of employment to get acclimatised in Capgemini.
