Some Food for Thought
We build inclusive ethical data and AI communities with the workforce of today for a more just and equitable tomorrow for all.
We are aligned to SDG goals 4 (Quality Education), 8 (Decent Work and Economic Growth) and 10 (Reduced Inequalities). For the past three years we’ve been kicking ass for a more just and inclusive tomorrow. From an 88% un/underemployment rate at their start to a rate of 91% employed in their new field, 97% of our community completes the program successfully.
Once the technical training completes, we offer a paid employment agreement to our most succesful graduates so people could have their first Dutch employer, a return to the working world or their first position in the IT sector. Part of the job responsibilities include coaching the next cohort, learning both to transfer their knowledge to others, expanding our inclusive data community and reinforcing collective success as the pathway to real change.
Our MAEX Social Handprint
Did you know we have made quite some social impact? It would translate to about 1.9 million euro in the past 2 years. That’s pretty neat!
Our focus on inclusion, practical data science skills, job coaching and paid traineeships to move people towards financial independence make us unique in the Netherlands. As does the variety of our community. Everyone is welcome to apply. This means we are not creating more silos of only women, only Dutch people, only refugees etc. Instead we are one community, made strong by many.
Want to know more – MAEX measures our social impact independently each year. In 2020, our social impact was measured with a value of 740.000 euros. In 2021, we will nearly triple that.
