Lokendra Sethi, HR Manager – DXC Technology, India, said: “While enabling accessibility of the right knowledge and life skills is central to our vision of CSR, there is also the broader goal of nation building by empowering youth; and especially the women of India to become self-sufficient. Through this collaboration with the NASSCOM Foundation, we are reaching out to female engineering students across the country to provide them with the digital skills and competencies needed to prepare them for the future. Digital learning is the right next step in the overall advancement of our youth and hence the key to a stronger India.
Nidhi Bhasin, CEO of NASSCOM Foundation, said, “While the bulk of India’s population is made up of young people, they face the challenge of sustaining the potential of their talents and harnessing the demographic dividend. The existing skills gap has tested the progress of young people as well as the supply of talent for businesses. To bridge this gap, prioritizing digital learning by creating digital hubs will address the much-needed skills of students, especially women, for the growing futuristic tech industry. We are honored to partner with DXC Technology to collaborate on an initiative that nurtures young minds and encourages them to embrace rapid technological advancements to meet national and global needs.
Reports suggest that the market for digital transformation solutions will grow by 15.6% globally by 2030. With the increased adoption of digitalization during the COVID-19 crisis, the pace of adoption of technology has accelerated dramatically in all sectors.
Therefore, digital and technological expertise will be the main in-demand employable skills in the future. To empower young people in educational institutions, especially women, with advanced future skills and modern techno-digital solutions such as AI, ML is bound to do much to empower and shape their future.
