Together, your Internet even better

The AuRA Region is committed to greater diversity in IT

Despite steadily increasing IT job vacancies, the female population is under-represented in this sector. The Gender Scan survey presented last November even confirmed a decline in the rate of feminisation in the Digital sector, both in terms of the diplomas obtained and their access to employment.


The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region has therefore launched a call for "Actions and Training" projects to increase the proportion of women in IT.

The aim of this scheme is to support, through operating grants, action plans to encourage gender diversity in the digital sector in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. Applications must be submitted before 15th March in one of the following categories: awareness raising, vocational training and support for employment.


The Region will select and financially support 3 applications - the best application in each of the three categories - for a total amount of 40,000 euros. Proposals will be implemented for a maximum of one year from the date of signature of the grant award agreement. The rate of support may not exceed 50 % of the total project budget.
