Ireland’s Females in Technology (I-FITs): An exclusive Tech Apprenticeship Programme for Irish females residing in communities at the heart of Dublin’s ‘Silicon Dock’.

Project Summary: An exclusive Tech Apprenticeship Programme for Irish females residing in communities at the heart of Dublin’s ‘Silicon Dock’. A two-year programme aimed at equipping local women with the tech know-how to carve out a successful career in a thriving industry. Offering participants the opportunity to earn while they learn, modern apprenticeships foster economic independence, progression and clear pathways to quality employment. The first fully-fledged female class is a pioneering approach to boosting participation and showcasing untapped talent. The programme not only aims to engage female tech enthusiasts, but also to measure the social capital generated from educating, empowering and employing women at the heart of the community.

 

 Google Impact Challenge

As part of a 1m investment in the Dublin Impact Challenge, Google invited non-profits, social enterprises and educators to submit bold ideas to grow social and economic opportunities in their communities.

I-FITs was amongst the final 15 projects amongst 250 applicants in this year’s Google Impact Challenge and secured grant funding of €50,000 to help build opportunity in Dublin.
