Abstract

Building Best Practices to serve Women and Girls

Digital Divide Data (DDD) believes talent has no boundaries and opportunities shouldn't either. In 2001, we saw the need to bring tech skills and living-wage work to men and women in underserved communities in Asia. It was here that DDD helped plant the seed for a socially responsible outsourcing practice known as impact sourcing. From this early work, DDD built a proven work-study methodology to train, support and employ talented individuals around the world, and thereby provide high quality, competitively priced ITO/BPO services to customers. Today, DDD continues to thrive and work towards a world where everyone – regardless of location or background – has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Since 2001, DDD's program has increased lifetime earnings for youth in Cambodia, Laos and Kenya by a projected total of more than US$350 million.
