Vapasi, a #TalkTechToHer initiative from Thoughtworks helps experienced women technologists who are currently on a career break, resume their tech journeys. The last 19 batches of Vapasi tailored for Developers and Quality Analysts saw more than 250+ women participate in the returnee program. Many of our Vapasi graduates are enjoying productive career paths at Thoughtworks and other companies.
Due to COVID-19 and in accordance with health and safety guidelines, our 20th batch of Thoughtworks Vapasi will be a virtual one.
Here are some quick facts on the upcoming edition designed for Developers.
This edition will have two batches depending on the years of career break. This edition is hosted by the offices of Thoughtworks in Chennai, Hyderabad, and Gurgaon.
As an experiment to explore talent and location diversity, we have extended Vapasi to two non-Thoughtworks locations: Jaipur and Kolkata under ‘work from anywhere’ arrangements. This model is for those candidates who will be chosen to intern and be hired by Thoughtworks. All Vapasi training will be remote/virtual.
Please note that you may be required to travel to Thoughtworks office or a client office for project or business needs (subject to your availability to travel and personal circumstances). Thoughtworks will reimburse such travel and accommodation expenses.
This 5-week training program is for women developers who have a career break of a minimum of three years and a maximum of eight years.
