to close the opportunity gap in tech.
Talent is equally distributed, opportunity is not - yet. Across France and Germany, refugee, migrant and disadvantaged socio-economic communities remain underresourced, underrepresented and underestimated across many sectors of society. Despite their potential, their untapped talent is often overlooked.
Together with Salesforce, we are working with local education non-profits to redress the situation, to empower individuals with the digital skills to thrive in meaningful careers in an accelerating digital economy.
Bridging gaps and building capacity - let’s innovate so they too can thrive.
Cultural diversity at the heart of tech
At INCO, we believe that inclusion and innovation go hand-in-hand. To enable an inclusive digital future, we're supporting six organisations in France and Germany with acceleration support to further the integration of cultural diversity in tech spaces.
For their communities, and 420 individuals with immigration backgrounds, this means dedicated IT training and placement support to help them reach their full potential.
Meet the organisations
We are delighted to announce our local partner organisations, non-profits selected as part of INCO Opportunity in France and Germany. Each of these organisations receives funding and capacity building support from INCO.
and digital upskilling
To support learners take their next steps towards careers in IT, our local partner organisations are working to ensure that opportunities created
by technology are available to everyone. To achieve this, our 18-month acceleration program will provide each organisation with capacity building focussed on:
