Are you a woman aspiring to pursue a career in tech?  The Women in RPA Initiative might be for you!

The 2020 1 million Women In RPA Initiative is a skills development program which aims to train and up-skill one million women in Robotics Process Automation by 31st December 2020. Yes, we know it sounds impossible, that’s why we are doing it.

Despite decades of progress towards achieving equality in the workplace, women remain significantly under-represented in emerging tech. The imbalance between men and women in the technology sector is unlikely to be remedied unless organizations, schools and universities work together to change entrenched perceptions about the tech industry, and also educate young people about the dynamics and range of careers in the technology world.​

Women currently hold 19 per cent of tech-related jobs at the top ten global tech companies, relative to men who hold 81 per cent. In leadership positions at these global tech giants, women make up 28 per cent, with men representing 72 per cent.

RPA Nuggets want to change this!

Inspired by Blue Prism, RPA Nuggets takes the baton to empower women and other underrepresented groups to take risks and realize their full potential in the workplace, particularly in emerging technologies.
