Innovecs, a global digital transformation tech company, announces the signing of the cooperation memorandum with Geek Girls LatAm, an ONG (Non-Governmental Organization) led by tech women to inspire, empower and connect Latina girls, teens, and women as agents of change in the use, of appropriation and creation of technology. Geek Girls LatAm aims to offer employment opportunities to its users and narrow the gender technology gap, expanding the possibilities for future generations of women in this sector.
Being a community-driven ecosystem, Innovecs has focused on the comprehensive development of its people as an integral part of its well-being philosophy. Aside from personal development, the provision of numerous professional options is at the company’s core. To provide the global business with top-tier solutions, Innovecs finds it pivotal to unleash the tech talent’s full potential via equal career prospects. Given the intersection of missions aimed at the common good, the partnership of Innovecs and GGL will surely boost the tech talent pool worldwide.
The cooperation of Innovecs and GGL will unfold in the context of the Engineering Leadership community, a development platform aimed at empowering collaborative growth and building unity among engineering leaders. Innovecs believes that engineering leaders are not only those who lead the team but everyone who develops innovations through everyday tasks as an expert. Together, the partners will share useful information via newsletters, nurture expertise through mutual participation in the events, and promote and support each other’s initiatives.
«The major Innovecs’ motive for tapping into new markets is the profusion of tech talents that need to be discovered. The best digital solutions emerge when ideas have no boundaries or constraints, that is, everyone gets equal opportunities for self-fulfillment, personal and professional advancement, and freedom of expression. This awareness is exactly what connects Innovecs with Geek Girls LatAm, whose mission is to support and nurture promising specialists who have a lot to give to the global tech arena. Powered by an ecosystem mindset and a community-driven philosophy, our collaboration is seen to become a robust booster for the tech sector and, more importantly, for each lady in reaching new heights and contributing to an innovative world. We know where the next engineering leaders are, and we will always stand by their endeavors».Santiago Cano Country Manager Colombia at Innovecs
GGL believes in the power of the technical and technological communities that open spaces for the inclusion, diversity, and promotion of more women in the sector. Strategies are being created for knowledge to reach more female talent.
‘We expect to join forces towards the gender gap in STEM, collaborating in an equality relationship. It is crucial to make partnerships between communities and tech companies because the solution to gender bias and gap is systemic, one organization can not do it alone, and we have to cooperate together to work harder and from each one’s possibilities. Tech companies require talent for the present and future, but talent must be cultivated from the early stages. In the case of women, we detected that gender bias starts at an early age, so there is a huge effort to close the gap in STEM.Such partnerships improve the tech sphere in general: we are more together, and strategic and impactful partnerships are the key to making it happen. We have a broader impact when working with other organizations, especially the private sector. It is vital to include women in technology because we are half the talent across the globe, and the possibility to lead the future and evolution is in our hands. We, the women around the world, believe we can be what we dream, transform gender bias, and educate ourselves in careers of the future’Joanna Prieto Co-founder & Board member of Geek Girls Latam organization
This cooperation has also been intended to create content in English and strengthen second language skills in our talent community. That is why next coming December we will launch our first Webinar fully in English with the presence of talented women in Europe and LatAm. More info here.
