Grupo Carrefour Brasil provides 300 scholarships for training in technology for black people

Grupo Carrefour Brasil in partnership with educational startup (Digital Innovation One) launches the Transforma Tec program. 300 vacancies will be made available for scholarships focused on Fullstack Java, React and Cloud Development for black people from all over the country, aged between 18 and 30 years old.

Technology is the fastest growing segment in the world, being highly competitive, and we aim to expand representation within this field. Actions like this are fundamental to expanding our commitment to promoting the black population and fighting racism, through concrete actions with short, medium and long-term impact, which aim to transform the lives of participants and the communities where they live”, says Cristiane Lacerda, Human Resources Director at Grupo Carrefour Brasil.

Transforma Tec is a fully online program, lasting 6 months, which has access to a training track customized to the demands of the technology market. With a methodology focused on developing talent in the area, it uses activities, projects and practical video classes to learn from scratch with the follow-up of experts and monitors throughout the training.
