helps you tackle problems​​

Not enough IT professionals to hire. Not enough women to hire.
It is hard to find, hire and retain women in IT. We help you meet with, connect with and recruit from 140 tech professionals. 70-80% are women. 50% have 3+ years of experience.

Finding sustainability and D&I initiatives that can demonstrate impact and a return on investment.

deploy(impact) has a 3 year track record and the data to prove its impact. Participants develop their skills and employability. Sponsors increase their attractiveness and develop their employees. Invest in a program that effects change.

Giving employees new ways to develop themselves and contribute to a wider purpose within their jobs

Studies suggest that hands-on learning is the most impactful and sustainable form of learning. Employees increasingly consider career development and purposeful work that aligns with their values as the most important factors when choosing their employer.




How the program works as a whole.

You can get a good idea of how the program works as a whole on our main deploy(impact) page.



Showcase your brand and add value through interactive workshops on-site and remote

Share your learnings with participants through interactive workshops, while simultaneously shining the spotlight on what makes your brand unique and special. 80% of surveyed participants stated that their perception of sponsors improved as a result of deploy(impact).


Engage and develop your employees by letting them mentor

Let your employees mentor teams as they go through the 6 week program. A minimum of 1 hours per week is required, but the benefits are remarkable. Studies show that mentors benefit just as much, if not more, from mentoring as mentees do. Previous mentors specifically highlighted their leadership skills improved as a result of mentoring.

Meet and exchange from the comfort of your own booth

At our on-site events, you will have your own booth and you will be in good company. Passion is one of the biggest reasons why people get involved with our programs, whether they are participants, representatives from companies, members of academia, non-profit organizations or one of our many partnering organizations who stand behind the same cause. You can be sure that you will meet people, who are intrinsically motivated to effect change.


Connect with and recruit talent

Facilitating recruiting helps both our sponsors as well as our participants. In our 2023 edition 90% of participants were open to job offers from sponsors. On top of the program being designed in a way for you to best identify talent that you are interested in, we assist you by connecting you with participants both during and even after the program. 



Our team is here for you. If you are interested in getting involved with deploy(impact), don't hesitate to get in touch. Our main goal is increasing diversity in the swiss tech industry, so even if you don't think you fit into any of the standard sponsoring packages, we would love to talk and find a way to collaborate.

Over the six-week long project, collaborating as a team for a good cause and the networking opportunities that were available to me during deploy(impact) were extremely helpful.
It is such an amazing programme to not only improve my technical skills but also work alongside other developers, programmers and UX/UI designers towards a common goal. Importantly, it has also opened up job opportunities for me in the tech space.”

It's our great pleasure to support the women++ deploy(impact) program because the Swiss job market needs more talent in the IT industry. Our experienced Capgemini mentors have done an excellent job, and we are committed to increase the number of women working in the tech sector.

The mission of women++ very well aligns with our D&I strategy and very well connects with our goal to increase the share of women in tech. We truly believe that diverse teams are much stronger and also we feel the call that we actually have to walk to a more diverse and inclusive society.

deploy(impact) gave me great experience working in a specialised team where each person had their designated function i.e PM, developer, UX etc. This was my first experience working in a scrum configuration with sprints, which was especially helpful when I transitioned to my next role as the start up was just implementing scrum and I was able to help guide them with useful tips and tricks that I had picked up from my project and team.

After completing the project, I included it in my portfolio and CV. I did a new round of applications, which was really successful. I was invited for a lot more interviews and it was the project I mainly spoke about. Also, it was a real project and not a case study, which helped a lot. Now I have my first full-time #job in #UX, I'm a junior user researcher

We challenged 5 teams with a software project and there was a high variety of solutions. Each team approached the challenge from different angles, utilising their unique team's strengths, coming up with a usable application that we can easily implement.
