Nexer partners with ReDI Tech School to support migrant and refugee women
Nexer is a second-time partner to the non-profit tech school ReDI in Malmö, supporting migrant and refugee women through a free program offering IT and tech courses on several levels. The goal is to empower women by providing access to digital skills and a supportive network in Sweden.
ReDI Malmö started in the first semester of 2022. Partners, alongside Nexer, are from reputed organisations such as Microsoft, Coca-Cola Foundation, L’Oréal Paris Foundation and Malmö Stad. Nexer Cybersecurity supports with knowledge and expertise in cybersecurity sessions.
“We at Nexer believe in empowering women and support diversity in work culture. Hence, we decided to become a partner and successfully deliver the SC-900 – Microsoft Security, Compliance and Identity Fundamentals course”, says Anna Olsson, Business Manager at Nexer Cybersecurity.
The classes were conducted with demonstrations and examples, to ensure that students could easily understand the concept and gain valuable insights and knowledge.
“We have successfully delivered the course and lab session along with Microsoft. We have also presented a session on cybersecurity with some insights and real-world cyber attacks, which helped students get a good cybersecurity knowledge”, concludes Anna Olsson.
Demo Day 15th of June
On the 15th of June, a demo and career day will be held in Malmö, where more than 90 cybersecurity and tech students from ReDI School in Malmö are invited to network and showcase their skills and knowledge to potential future employers. Nexer will contribute with a presentation of Tomorrow Report, which describes the Swedish people’s thoughts and attitudes towards tech and digitalisation. Nexer will also moderate a panel discussion.
ReDI School is a tech school and a community with a diverse pool of tech talent. It was established in Berlin in 2016 and has currently eight schools in Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
ReDI is also a partner for IT companies in Sweden that want to support people with migration backgrounds to find their way into the Swedish job market and believe diversity is the driving force of creativity and innovation.
There are 4500+ volunteers engaged in this programme. Most of them are IT experts, coders, software engineers and data scientists, creating a great community for knowledge sharing. 6000+ migrants or newcomers from various countries are part of this programme, and 100+ companies and private firms are contributing to this initiative.
The main focus of the programme is to strengthen women and make them self-sufficient to survive in the fast-paced IT industry. ReDI also organises various tech sessions, career activities, job fairs, and mentorship programmes to empower women.
