Laboratoria’s mission is to prepare young women and organizations for a more diverse, inclusive and competitive digital economy in Latin America. The organization does this through an innovative training model (bootcamp) that transforms young women from underserved backgrounds into software developers and UX designers. It then connects them to companies that need their talent, while also training organizations on how to face digital transformation challenges. This program will support Laboratoria’s expansion to a new country: Colombia.
Laboratoria trains thousands of young women in Latin America to develop careers in tech that will change their future, while making the industry more diverse. Laboratoria currently operates in Peru, Mexico, Chile and Brazil. Through its bootcamp, young women who have not had access to quality education become web developers and UX designers, accessing quality jobs in technology. Laboratoria has trained over 1,000 young women and placed 80 percent of them in tech jobs with salaries that nearly triple their previous incomes.
