El talento de fundación everis viaja ahora en Cabify
Cabify and everis foundation sign a collaboration agreement to promote young talent.
Cabify, the Spanish mobility company, and the everis foundation, a part of the everis Group, have signed a collaboration agreement that will double the number of beneficiaries of two of everis’ flagship programs: mentoring for adolescent girls and free training in digital technologies for children and young people at risk of dropping out of school.
This agreement follows, on the one hand, Cabify’s plan to implement the vision and the mission of the company with the creation of policies, programs and actions that positively impact both people and their environment; on the other, the need highlighted by the everis foundation to transform society thanks to the talent of the company volunteers.
This agreement will specially benefit the participants taking part in the fourth edition of the Pulsar Program, an initiative that brings together high-potential teen girls with women who are a referent in different fields and act as a professional role model for them. Thanks to this program, these young girls acquire tools that empower them to discover their own potential, to move forward in their training itinerary and to reach their personal and professional goals. In addition to logistic support, Cabify contributes to the mentoring effort with the participation of female senior managers.
Besides, Cabify will make it possible for hundreds of highly-skilled volunteers of the everis foundation to bring scientific and technological vocations closer to children and youths at risk of dropping out. The volunteers of the Foundation are thus able to reach schools and associations that require their work, thereby facilitating the training process.
For Karla Alarcón, Director of everis foundation, ‘The agreement with Cabify has been the bridge that we needed to make available to society –at the moment just in Madrid– the talent of all our volunteers, so we can bring them closer to the sites where their help is more needed’.
In the words of David Pérez, Global CSR Director of Cabify, ‘Cabify shares from its start this conviction that business practices should help the corporate world become more aware of its own impact and act in a more sustainable and inclusive manner. We work so that our positive impact improves life in the city. This collaboration with the everis foundation allows us to reinforce our work in key areas such as the education of the youngest, a fundamental element for our future as a society’.
The program, which promotes the inclusion of girls through the mentorship of female leaders in various spheres of society, will now benefit, in addition to kids from public schools, those associated to the social institution. Furthermore, all training and mentoring meetings will take place digitally.
How to fly a drone, how to design an app or how to create your own video game will be some of the topics that will be worked on with the children from July 7 to 16.
This activity will take place online on June 26th, at 16:00, with the help of volunteer trainers from the Foundation.
The jury recognised the project for its street cleaning system which, through artificial intelligence and machine learning, detects, classifies and collects rubbish from the streets.
