Ironhack and Accenture Scholarships to Study Training Camp in Java

It targets women with training in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, and they can apply through March 31.

Spain needs at least 120,000 women with professional IT profiles. Due to this lack of technological talent, 315 million euros are lost annually due to the lack of this type of specialized profile, according to a study by VASS and UAM. However, there is not only a talent gap, but also a gender gap.

According to the OIE, only 13% of women choose to study STEM careers, and this lack of traits is reflected in the part of their training intensively in the labor market. Only 1% of women work in the technology sector and only 11.5% hold management positions within the company.

To help advance women’s presence in technology, Ironhack and Accenture have teamed up to launch a pilot project to train 25 women in Java Bootcamp with Scholarships covering 100% of the course cost, worth 7500 euros. Once the program is completed they will have a fixed indefinite contract.
