Capgemini to work with #techmums to bring tech to UK mums

Publish date:

#techmums is working together with Capgemini UK and WPP to bring technology training to women across the UK.

#techmums and CapgeminiAs companies wake up to the bottom-line business value of having a diverse workforce, #techmums is working together with Capgemini UK and WPP to bring technology training to women across the UK.

#techmums offers a five-week course free of charge to mothers with no prior IT experience. The course covers a range of subjects from online safety to basic coding, and has been credited with opening doors to jobs and further education. This year, the course will go online with the potential of reaching many mums who feel left behind by the fast pace of technology. The online version of the course will deliver the same great #techmums syllabus but will not be constrained by the need for a classroom.

Capgemini UK and WPP agencies Addison Group and Cognifide will now work together with #techmums to bring the course to a much bigger audience.

Frances Duffy, CapgeminiFrances Duffy, Capgemini’s UK & Regional HR Director and Active Inclusion lead, commented: “At Capgemini, we help people from every background to unlock their working potential, today and for the future. We are very excited about working with #techmums to help mothers recognise and realise their strengths; together, we will equip them with the digital skills they need to develop bright careers in whatever industry they choose. In turn, we believe they will offer their future employers a greater diversity of thought, which will drive innovation and business profitability.”

#techmums founder, Dr Sue Black, OBE, is delighted by the support being offered and said, “Team #techmums are so excited to be supported by Capgemini and WPP. We aim to have 1 million #techmums across the globe by 2020 and are looking forward to working with them to make that happen.”
