Accenture joins digital training for PWDs

Accenture has partnered with the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) in a program that provides digital skills training to persons with disabilities (PWDs). The program aims to prepare PWDs with the right skills to make them more employable. It provides digital skills training that enables PWDs to become virtual assistants or online service providers in the outsourcing industry. The program aims to train 120 PWDs as well as single mothers and housewives. At least 54 PWDs have already been trained under the program. The program is part of Accenture’s Skills to Succeed (S2S), a global initiative to advance employment and entrepreneurship opportunities worldwide.
