Why DigiPivot?

In the recent report by the World Economic Forum, India is now ranked 112th in the Gender Gap 2020. As per the 2021 “Upskilling for Shared Prosperity” report by the World Economic Forum, India has the potential for as much as $570 billion additional GDP by 2030, which is equivalent to 6.8% of total GDP and will be able to add 2.3 million more jobs, by investing in reskilling.

According to a recent study conducted by Avtar, the annual attrition rate for women in India is 18% and close to half of Indian women professionals quit work before they turn 30. The employable talent pool of second career women (women on career breaks) in urban India is estimated to be as wide as 7 million. According to the first-ever study (2017) on the rights of transgenders by the National Human Rights Commission, about 92 percent of transgenders are deprived of the right to participate in any form of economic activity in India, with even qualified ones refused jobs. With the evolution of big data and the availability of in-depth consumer information, 2020 was expected to generate over 20 lakh digital marketing jobs and the number of opportunities created every year in the digital marketing industry is expected to exponentially increase, going forward in India.

With the expertise of Google, Avtar and ISB, this program aims to enable early and mid-career Digital Marketing pivots for women professionals. The DigiPivot journey will begin with an inaugural session in the second week of May, 2022 followed by 22 weeks of online e-learnings, webinars and mentorship offered by Google, culminating with a virtual graduation event. Upon graduation from the program the cohort members will be inducted into the esteemed DigiPivot alumni network.

Having been instrumental in creating career opportunities for more than 75,000 women, Avtar will assist and hand hold till you complete the learning journey successfully.

Through DigiPivot, Google, Avtar and ISB aim to help 200+ women leaders reskill themselves on digital marketing and feel empowered to pivot their careers into being digital marketing leaders by the end of 2022.
