ThoughtWorks brings technical women back to work with Vapasi 2018

ThoughtWorks, a global technology company is back with its next edition of Vapasi. Vapasi is a ThoughtWorks India initiative that addresses the gender gap within the developer community. The program will enable experienced women developers who are currently on a career break, to re-enter the world of programming. And this year, the 3rd edition of Vapasi will be held in Pune, launching in the 2nd week of April.
 
Vapasi 2018 is an intensive 3-week bootcamp on Java and object-oriented programming. Post the bootcamp, selected participants are offered a 3 to 6-month internship with ThoughtWorks. After the internship, participants can apply for a full-time position with the company. The program also intends to be a platform for women technologists to network, connect with role models, and become active members of the tech community.
 
Commenting on the Vapasi program, Savita Hortikar, Head of Recruitment, ThoughtWorks India said, "ThoughtWorks has always been passionate about diversity. We realise that an inclusive work environment of driven technologists leads to sustainable organisational growth. And, we are happy that the Vapasi program is helping women professionals continue strong technical careers."
 
Here are a few highlights from last year's Vapasi edition:
  • 22 participants complete a 4-week bootcamp in Hyderabad
  • 1 of the participants was offered a full-time position
  • 3 more completed the ThoughtWorks internship, and are currently full-time employees
  • 3 other participants went on to acquire jobs at other leading tech companies
Vapasi is part of #TalkTechToHer, a ThoughtWorks initiative directed towards women in technology who have more than 6 years of work experience. The campaign wants to elevate the conversation around inclusivity and drive an important message that women can achieve as much as men, or more, when they are presented with the opportunities, without the biases.
