New Delhi, January 12, 2024: Nagarro, a global digital engineering leader, was highlighted in The World Economic Forum's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Lighthouses 2024 report for its innovative neuro-inclusion program. The spotlight initiative, named TestingPro, is a highly personalized upskilling program aimed at creating a new talent pool of individuals on the autism spectrum, aligning with Nagarro's commitment to fostering workplace equity and contributing to the industry's inclusivity.
TestingPro was launched in partnership with Specialisterne in Austria in 2016, aiming to empower neurodivergent individuals by equipping them with skills in software testing and AI/data assistance, facilitating their integration into the global workforce. Nagarro expanded the program to India in 2023 through collaborations with local organizations, including Atypical Advantage, Action for Autism, and NASSCOM, and has successfully trained 87 neurodivergent individuals, achieving a placement rate of over 75%.
Shruti Tandon, Custodian of DE&I, at Nagarro, expresses gratitude to the World Economic Forum for recognizing TestingPro as a DEI highlight in 2024. “At Nagarro, we are committed to making distance and difference irrelevant and creating a no-labels future. Attracting, training, and upskilling neurodiverse talent while fostering workplace equity and industry-wide inclusion is critical to this. Through the dedication of our team, we have scaled the program globally, with plans for further expansion and enhancements in training modules and certifications. While acknowledging there is more work to be done, we celebrate this achievement and the progressive steps we have taken."
