The Digital Academy is an 18-week training and leadership program based in the Bronx.
Our local partner provides intensive training in cloud-computing (AWS and Azure). This work is then paired with Social Builder’s mentors, individual and collective coaching sessions, workshops, meetups, and tech company visits.
The Digital Academy seeks to connect women from underserved communities to successful careers in this new sector. This includes women of color, women from low-income backgrounds, women who are unemployed or under-employed, and women who have otherwise felt excluded from opportunities in Tech. We encourage all women with the drive and desire to pursue a career in this sector to apply.
Our most effective method on new jobs and connecting women is our bootcamps. They articulate content around the industry, learning methods through leadership training, and networking with the local ecosystem. We have deployed bootcamps over 1 to 3 days and reached up to 2,000 women per bootcamp.
Our main bootcamps:
#SheMeansBusiness : this Facebook program trains women to the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, web, digital marketing, leadership, and networking. Since 2018, about 25,000 women have been trained all over France.
Women in Tech trainings: focus on web integration, data analyst, DBA, in partnership with low-income and disadvantaged communities. We reached 5,000 women and integrated 350 through our corporate partners (BNPP, Capgemini, Sopra Steria, Nokia). Integration is made possible through mentoring, codevelopment, awareness about stereotypes, and inclusive management.
