Coding Bootcamps: Providing Opportunities for Employment for Newcomers in Mexico
Technology can deepen global inequality. It also has the potential to mitigate it. In today’s episode, we speak to Aída Chávez Zapata & Diana Izquierdo about the impact of Hola Code, a start-up that uses technology-focused education and opportunities as a tool of reintegration. Hola Code offers a coding bootcamp for migrants, newly deported, and immigrants in Mexico covering education, employment, and exposure to tech pioneers. We speak with them about alternative education in technology as a pathway to economic growth, universality in technology in allowing the adoption internationally, and how their work benefits decent work and economic growth for all.

Empowering Women Through Vocational Training
The gender gap in trades is real and the industry can benefit from more women in the field as it would provide a key role in the adjustment of labor supply to meet market demands. On this week’s episode, we discuss SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities with Nour Hamayel, a gender and inclusion officer at The Lutheran World Federation who is leading the Gender-Responsive and Inclusive Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) – a program to improve education, training, and employment for Palestinian women in non-traditional fields.
