New Dimensions x DataCamp Donates: Empowering Women in Ecuador with Data Literacy


The New Dimensions scholarship program was created and is managed by the nonprofit organization Ecuadorian Development Research Lab (LIDE) and sponsored by the United States Embassy in Ecuador and DataCamp Donates. Co-director, Alonso Quijano-Ruiz, will show us how he developed this program to equip young women entering the Ecuadorian workforce with business intelligence skills so they can break the cycle of generational poverty that affects over a quarter of the country’s citizens. The New Dimensions program has become a crucible for success, and you’ll see testimonials from many women who have drastically increased their earning power with new jobs after learning on DataCamp with the guidance of Mr. Quijano-Ruiz and other in-person instructors.

Key Takeaways:

  • The current state of data literacy in Ecuador and how it connects to overall economic development
  • How the New Dimensions scholarship program utilizes DataCamp’s curriculum to teach women business intelligence and results from the program.
  • How nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and for-profit companies can come together to affect focused, positive change in underserved communities.
