The project

Women rightsInternational solidarity
Sistech is committed to helping refugee women choose a qualified and sustainable professional future that will enable them to achieve economic and social emancipation. Sistech fights the "it's better than nothing" attitude by demanding equal opportunities for all.

Refugee women are twice as unemployed as refugee men, despite being twice as qualified as them in Europe.

In order to change the situation and not let their skills and talents go to waste, Sistech has co-constructed a support program exclusively for displaced women (refugees, asylum seekers and subsidiary and temporary protection) with them. This program takes into account the particularities of the women (dependent children, self-censorship, etc.) combined with obstacles relating to their administrative status (no right to work, no access to private housing, no driving license, no diploma recognition, lack of command of the French language, etc.).

We haven't been bored these past three months at Sistech!!

But Sistech doesn't just organize programs in France. Our team in Athens recently celebrated the graduation of 20 Fellows who participated in Springboard. They now have a real knowledge of the tech industry. "Team Greece" is also preparing to welcome 45 new Fellows to the Pathway orientation program! Finally, our Milan-based team is in the middle of its own Springboard, with 20 Fellows. These women are full of courage and talent. Their ambition inspires our work.

And this work is possible, in part, thanks to captain donations! So thank you for your support. Don't forget that Sistech is authorized to receive the balance of the apprenticeship tax, and that your companies can pay it now on  Feel free to send an e-mail to [email protected] for more information.

Why we love it?

Sistech's winning bet is to capitalize on the know-how and expertise of refugee women to meet the recruitment needs of the tech sector, while imposing the utmost rigor on the quality of what is offered.

It is my hope that one day we will no longer associate a person's skills and social value with the nationality on their passport.
