“Pandemic and now the Great She-cession have left a deep impact on the employability of women not only in India, but across the globe. While the Covid-19 Crisis has put a temporary pause in increasing women’s workforce participation in India, it has also presented us with a huge opportunity. When women professionals cut through the career zigzag that often oscillates between careers and families, they need certain skillsets for them to remain intentional in their careers. Only when women professionals are made aware of those skills, transformation happens. DigiPivot provides a perfect combination of technical knowledge & strategic upskilling, to enable women reimagine upskilling and reshape the growth narrative for the country.” said Dr Saundarya Rajesh, Founder – President of Avtar Group commenting on the launch.
DigiPivot, is built on the foundation of industry-academia partnership. The program has the potential to enhance employability of women, generating entrepreneurs in large, Tier 2 and 3 cities.
