The program will introduce an online Google IT Certification for vulnerable populations, such as youth and women, in Mexico, Panama and Brazil, as a partnership between Google.org, IDB Lab, the Social Sector of the IDB, and outstanding nonprofit organizations. It will address the acute digital skills gap in the region and the lack of upward mobility for vulnerable populations. The IT Support certification will be an entry point, but also a stepping stone to career paths in the rapidly growing technology sector.
ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF IADB
The Independent Consultation and Investigation Mechanism (MICI) is the independent complaint mechanism and fact-finding body for people who have been or are likely to be adversely affected by an Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) or Inter-American Investment Corporation (IIC)-funded project. If you submit a complaint to MICI, they may assist you in addressing the problems you raised through a dispute-resolution process with those implementing the project and/or through an investigation to assess whether the IDB or IIC is following its own policies for preventing or mitigating harm to people or the environment. You can submit a complaint by sending an email to MICI@iadb.org. You can learn more about the MICI and how to file a complaint at http://www.iadb.org/en/mici/mici,1752.html (in English) or http://www.iadb.org/es/mici/mici,1752.html (Spanish).
