Skills to succeed in India
Through Skills to Succeed we are addressing—at scale—the global need for skills that open doors to employment and economic opportunity. To date, with our strategic partners, we have equipped more than 690,000 people in India with the skills to get a job or build a business.
Since 2010, our "Skills to Succeed" initiative in India is empowering youth and women from economically weaker sections and persons with disabilities by equipping them with skills needed for high-demand job sectors. The rapid pace and scale of technological changes are disrupting labor markets and fundamentally altering the future of work. It is with these challenges in mind that we are strategizing our Corporate Citizenship efforts–Inclusion in the Digital Economy.
Over 314,000 women impacted through our Skills to Succeed initiatives.
