Promoting talented women in the STEAM areas

By Diana Salazar | Co-founder Geek Girls LatAm

I love to continue sharing with you our progress in promoting the talented women who are transforming the Digital Economy for Latin America. Thank you for continuing to support our sustainability as a Colombian non-profit organization that positively impacts the lives of Latina girls and women!

Our organization entered into a powerful partnership with the Coursera platform, which provides online training and certifications. From there we launched the Talents 4.0 program. Since then, 366 Latin American women have developed skills in areas such as Data Science, Computer Science, and Business. In the development of this process, which began in May 2021, more than 700 applications were received, 450 women were accepted as fellows and 366 of them successfully completed their training. After more than 8,000 hours of learning, the scholarship holders achieved more than 450 certifications. More than 40 of them managed to pass five or more courses.

32% of the applicants to this learning process did not have any experience in virtual training, so GGL designed a series of pedagogical and support strategies for our interns to achieve their goals.

Thanks to the contributions to our cause, this type of missionary program are possible, during this year 2022 new cohorts of Talents 4.0 will be open to the public, mostly 100% free for the participants.

‘’When I enrolled in the program, I had the fortune to do data science, innovation, with the Geek Girls Latam and Coursera alliance. I am very grateful for the support, follow-up, and inspiration. Thanks to the initiative, I was also able to participate in the International program dictated by ESADE. Without a doubt, I can affirm that it has been a source of growth, and of opportunities that come to transform our lives.’’- said Yazuline, a participant in the program.

We love you!

Me encanta seguir compartiendo con ustedes nuestro progreso en la promoción de las mujeres talentos que transforman la Economía Digital para América Latina. ¡Gracias por seguir apoyando nuestra sostenibilidad como organización sin ánimo de lucro Colombiana que incide positivamente en la vida de las niñas y mujeres latinas! 

Nuestra organización inició una alianza poderosa con la plataforma Coursera, que brinda formación y certificaciones en línea. A partir de allí lanzamos el programa Talentos 4.0.  Desde entonces 366 mujeres latinoamericanas han desarrollado habilidades en áreas como la ciencia de Datos, las Ciencias de la Computación y Negocios. En el desarrollo de este proceso, que comenzó en mayo de 2021, se recibieron más de 700 postulaciones, 450 mujeres fueron aceptadas como becarias y 366 de ellas finalizaron con éxito su formación. Tras más de 8.000 horas de aprendizaje, las becarias lograron más de 450 certificaciones. Más de 40 de ellas lograron aprobar cinco o más cursos

El 32 % de las postulantes a este proceso de aprendizaje no tenía ninguna experiencia en formaciones virtuales, por lo que GGL diseñó una serie de estrategias pedagógicas y de acompañamiento para que nuestras becarias lograran su objetivo. 

Gracias a los aportes a nuestra causa, este tipo de programas misionales es posible, durante este año 2022 nuevas cohortes de Talentos 4.0 serán abiertas al público en su mayoría 100% gratuitas para las participantes.

‘’Al inscribirme al programa conté con la fortuna de realizar en ciencias de datos, innovación, con la alianza Geek Girls Latam y Coursera. Estoy muy agradecida por el apoyo, seguimiento e inspiración. Gracias a la iniciativa, también pude participar en el programa Internacional dictado por ESADE. Sin duda alguna puedo afirmar que ha sido una fuente de crecimiento, y de oportunidades que llegan a transformar nuestras vidas.’’- dice Yazuline participante del programa. 

Les amamos
