In the evening of 14th June, hundreds of people gathered in one of the palaces in Prague, to conclude and cheer for the effort that some 30 girls and ladies have put in the past weeks into their final Digital Academy projects. Projects that were their final course work for the Czechitas digital academy program. For the second time in a row, Colours of Data is has been a proud partner of this 12-week-long IT and data-centric course. Here is, how do our consultants perceive their involvement.
Mentors, lecturers and shoulders to cry on
Czechitas design their courses with the aim to create junior data analysts that are such a scarce resource in the current job market. By helping girls and young women to switch to a different career, the outcome of the program is much more than pure requalification. Most of the time, girls that enroll in the course have a full-time job, are young mothers, or still study university. This journey is no bed of roses on its own and combined with other duties, it steals every minute of their free time they don’t have.
