SheWorks! is disrupting gender unemployment by connecting the dots between talent, online education, and remote jobs to empower women.
15. Growth Strategy: What are your main strategies for scaling your impact?
Our key traction metrics are Revenue, Monthly Customers and Talent Placed. Our indicators of success are not only related to profitability but also on the social impact we promote. In this regard, increasing the quantity of women connected to flexible employment opportunities is a key target for our success. During 2019 we validated the model with a few placements with high success / satisfaction rate. In 2020, we plan to increase the quantity exponentially and, with the launch of SheWorks! Academy 2.0 include the quantity of trained women to our core KPIs.
16. Activating changemakers: How are you giving people the power to control their own destiny and support other people to become changemakers in their communities?
The internet is one of the most important factors in transforming business practices, and education models need to change and evolve just as fast as technology. Traditional institutions are slow to keep up with teaching the most in-demand skills needed to supply the next generation with the resources to become successful in the working world. Our model allows us to train women on the latest technologies and tools. Empowered women can drive transformative change at the household and community level. Advancing women’s equality could add $17 trillion to global growth by 2025 (Source: UN).
17. Awards & Recognitions: What awards or recognitions, if any, has the project received so far?
In 2018, SheWorks! was presented as the only gender-inclusive case study at W20 Argentina. August 2019 SheWorks! was selected as one of the 5 finalists from the Latam region: 2019 WE Empower UN SDG Challenge, for female entrepreneurs who are advancing the 17 UN SDGs. In 2019, SheWorks! Academy accepted the EQUALS in Tech award in the Leadership in Tech category.
