Companies to give half a million women digital skills

Google, BT and DCMS among over 1,000 organisations are offering free mentorship to independent organisations through the Digital Boost programme to digitally upskill 500,000 women from female-led organisations by January 2022, with 200,000 of those from BAME backgrounds.

Founded by Sherry Coutu CBE, Digital Boost helps small organisations access digital skills through unlimited free one-to-one mentorships delivered by volunteers from organisations including Google, DCMS, Visa, BT and The Big Lottery.

Digital Boost is a subsidiary of F4S, one of the largest employability charities in the UK. Supported by DCMS, Google and many others, the initiative was created in 2020 in response to Covid-19 to help drive inclusive economic growth and improve the livelihoods of millions, with a particular focus on the needs and challenges of women working for small businesses and charities.
