Women´s Talent Program 4.0
Female students with high potential who are currently in the final year of their undergraduate or postgraduate STEM programs at the University of Granada (programs related to sciences, engineering, technology, or mathematics).
Initially, the selection of candidates to participate in the Program is done directly by the Talent Incubator. However, if you are interested in participating in this program, self-nominations are accepted. To do so, please send an email to email@example.com
Purpose of the Program
The digital sector is currently the sector offering the most employment opportunities and better salaries in the job market. In Spain, there is a need for nearly three million professionals with digital skills as companies urgently need to successfully complete transformations that, due to the rapid digital acceleration and the forced restructuring of processes initiated by the pandemic, are now unavoidable.
Many women with STEM profiles have a promising future and high potential to enter the digital sector. All that is required is interest and proper guidance. However, women’s role in the sector continues to have much less weight, with their presence in these areas being quite limited.
This program aims to promote the digital talent of female experts in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), providing guidance, training, and professional experience to female students to help them start a successful career in digital companies.
The fourth edition of the program will follow the following schedule:
- Processing of applications and selection of participants: October and November 2023
- Experiential training in soft skills and career guidance: November and December 2023
- Paid internships in a digital company: February to July 2024
