iSisters is pleased to announce the receipt of the following generous grants from its Corporate supporters:
Accenture: $5,500 in support of the iSisters Career Connections Program
iSisters’ overall vision is closely aligned with that of Accenture. In particular, the values of preparing for the impact of digital technologies on the workforce, advancing employment and entrepreneurship opportunities for individuals, and helping to close skills and employment gaps for vulnerable and marginalized people around the world.
TELUS: $11,500 in support of the iSisters iAT (Assistive Technology) Program
The primary goal of this iSisters project is to adapt a pre-existing assistive technology pilot program to reflect the differentiated learning needs of female students at the Youville Centre to further improve their education, employment, income, and well-being. Funding from TELUS will allow for the introduction of AT (Apps) to new students so that they become effective and independent learners, and to manage themselves in all facets of daily life.
