Digital Classroom for the integration of women in the workplace

We have opened the first Women’s Digital Center in Spain, in collaboration with APRAMP (Asociación para la Prevención, Reinserción y Atención a la Mujer Prostituida - association for the prevention, reintegration and care of women prostitutes). The objectives include digital education into the socio-professional training programme set-up by APRAMP for women in situations of vulnerability in Madrid.

The inauguration of the new "Digital Classroom" was attended by Christine Albanel, Orange Group Executive Director of Corporate Social Responsibility, Diversity, Partnerships and Solidarity, and Brigitte Audy, General Secretary of the ORange Foundation. It is part of the Digital Centres initiative launched by the Orange Foundation at the international level that has reached out to 8,000 women in 10 countries, including France and now Spain.


The project consists not only in equipping the association with various technological devices, such as computers, tablets, etc., but is also backed up by an educational programme adapted to the situation and designed to train the women participating in the APRAMP fashion workshop.

So, training courses are delivered on digital skills, from learning how to browse and look up information online, preparing a CV, searching for employment or inputting information into the stock control system of the association… and even a practical initiation in 3-D printing. The classroom has a 3-D printer used to prepare original designs for buttons and other clothing accessories. This training is provided in collaboration of Womenteck association.

Digital technology and education are two major factors that we must bear in mind for reducing the social, professional and digital divide. In the case of APRAMP, the digital education modules are specifically designed for the beneficiares of this association and are therefore adapted to the specific requirements of each woman. This helps to strengthen individual talent and considerably increases self-esteem and the ability to tolerate frustration, very much present in this type of group.

It also means preparing these women for the current digital transformation of the workplace, thereby increasing the possibilities of finding a worthwhile job, by learning personalised digital skills.
