Impact Acceleration

INCO Education Accelerator

Advancing digital learning opportunities in a time of crisis

Advancing digital learning opportunities in a time of crisis

In response to global school disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the INCO Education Accelerator was launched with support from Google.org as part of their Distance Learning Fund. INCO deployed funds and technical support to educational nonprofits across the world that were struggling to provide safe instruction to their learners as a result of the  COVID-19 crisis.

 

Between April and August of 2020 INCO supported 30 nonprofit beneficiaries across 9 countries to transition their digital offerings, positively impacting over 360,000 learners who gained or sustained access to a high-quality education and instruction.

Google Impact Challenge Central and Eastern Europe

Putting digital inclusion at the center of the new economy.

INCO partnered with Google.org to help select their 2021 Impact Challenge Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) recipients. Google.org’s Impact Challenge CEE will provide €2m in grants to support initiatives that put digital inclusion at the heart of economic recovery. Applicants are from nonprofit organisations, for-profit organisations and academic institutions with charitable initiatives from 11 central and eastern European countries. Each has been asked to show how they will use technology and innovation to help individuals and communities gain new skills for the future. 

 

Applications have now closed and a panel of experts from Google.org and INCO are reviewing all submissions. Selected organisations will receive grant funding between €50,000 - €250,000, and possible customised support from Google, to help with their project. Grantees will be announced in the second half of 2021.

Pow'her in Tech

Empowering employers and women to transform the tech industry

The information technology sector is on track to be worth $5.2 trillion within the year, driving the creation of a new economy where jobs are created through, or as a result of, digital innovation. However, across the globe women only represent a fraction of those employed in the tech industry and the numbers have shrunk as a result of the global pandemic. Economically speaking, if the world’s regions matched the best performing countries in terms of gender parity, an additional $12 trillion of annual GDP would be realized by 2025. 

 

To recover from the COVID workforce crisis, and increase the number of women in tech, we need to start with employers. How can they champion diversity and inclusivity throughout the whole employee experience, from the recruitment process to the day-to-day and beyond? Next, we need to educate, train and empower more women to pursue careers in tech. The Pow'Her In Tech initiative, led by INCO.ORG and supported by the Chanel Foundation, provides tools for both employers and women interested in tech, to learn, connect and transform the tech industry.a
