ICFOSS in its mandate to promote free software and hardware is organizing its 6th season of “Back-to-Work” Residential Program for Women in partner with the Kerala Knowledge Economy Mission (KKEM) of Kerala Development and Innovation Strategic Council (K-DISC).
Join us for this immersive program on "Software Testing" at Sports Hub, Green Field, Karyavattom, starting from September 7th to October 1st, 2023. Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to enhance your knowledge and skills in the field of Software Testing.
This 15 day long residential program is an initiative to empower a large number of talented and ambitious women, who remain outside the workforce owing to marriage, motherhood, local constraints, family commitments, pursuit of personal passions etc. Quite often, due to personal and family responsibilities, women choose to opt out from their career. Later, when these women decide to restart their professional journey after a break, they are apprehensive and could move with guidance and hand-holding. Taking a break from work can be a liberating & daunting task for women. In this context, ICFOSS is offering an opportunity that allows women, who have taken a break from their career, due to personal commitments, to restart their career in various free software domains. It offers a profusion of second career options so that women can choose to return to work, one baby step at a time or bounce back with double the vigour. This program aims to provide women with the skills and resources they need to re-enter the workforce and make a meaningful impact.
ICFOSS has successfully conducted the last five seasons of the program, and there we were fortunate to successfully secure employment for 60% of participants in esteemed multinational corporations such as Ernst & Young (EY), Tata Elxsi , UST etc.
