Anything’s Possible. The art of making ‘anything possible’ is the core of our mission
When Rachel started building the free coding bootcamp on her own, she was often told that her idea was not realistic. Many software developers were skeptic about the possibility of finding jobs for people without any programming knowledge prior to a 3 months coding bootcamp. Some even said “more so, if they are women”.
Despite the obstacles along the way, she believed in her ability to succeed, not because she was confident that the idea wouldn’t fail, but because she believed that anything is possible. And once again, she has proved that anything is indeed possible.
Not only did Rachel make it a reality, the success went beyond her expectations. Even before the bootcamp was completed, 67% of her students had found a job in the tech industry. With a 91.6% success rate overall, Rachel not only improved the lives of young women and the gender gap in tech, she also gained new clients through the network of her social program. Her strategy works, and we are confident that we can implement effective social strategies to reach your CSR goals alongside a financial return.
Who Is WemanConnect?
We inspire companies to do impact investing alongside a financial return and we give back to social issues with a percentage of our profit and resources.
Corporate Social Responsibility goes beyond donation to a good cause – it’s all about getting involved both locally and internationally to make a difference. We are a for-profit organization, but giving something back is a cornerstone of our business. Our vision is to make a profit and help forward. Our mission is to inspire more businesses to give back through social strategic programs.
Rachel Man is the Founder of WemanConnect. Besides her active philanthropic activities for over a decade, she has an intensive 12 years of work experience at companies like Goldman Sachs, State Street Asset Management, Royal Bank of Scotland Coutts and at tech startup companies before starting her own social business. Why the name WemanConnect? The word woman has changed into weman as a form of unity or oneness and connect for a greater social impact. She used to earn a high corporate income with great benefits and bonuses, yet it didn’t give her the satisfaction that she was constantly seeking for, the purpose. She realized that being passionate in what you do is the result to a greater satisfaction at work. That’s how she started with WemanConnect, with the purpose not just to bring more positivity and sustainability to the world, but also to give (more) purpose in people’s work. She is determined to make a change in the world that everyone wants to see.
