Women now account for over half of Europe’s immigrants. They face many challenges including higher unemployment and are often clustered in less-skilled occupations. A study launched this week conducted among immigrant women in 5 EU countries clearly identifies how access to IT is critical to improving social and economic status and helping to find a job.
375 women pursuing NGO e-Skills training programs in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Hungary & Romania were interviewed. The study revealed the strong correlation between e-skills and employability and the important role of NGOs providing training as well as free or low-cost access to PCs. The research was undertaken as part of the Microsoft Unlimited Potential longstanding commitment to investing in e-skills development in Europe through NGO partnerships and community training initiatives to reach those underserved by technology. A short video of the study can be viewed below.
