Capgemini has partnered with Code Your Future, a non-profit coding academy, to provide digital and team-working skills and employment opportunities to refugees and other disadvantaged groups.
In this talk, Richard McMenamin will look at how providing training and employment to people from disadvantaged backgrounds can help them find a place in society. He will explore what organisations can gain from providing employment and mentoring, and what considerations and learnings Capgemini discovered along the way. He will also hear from someone from a refugee background, now in full-time employment as a web developer.
