Turing Contributes to Three Non-Profit Organizations in Honor of International Women’s Day
For Turing, diversity, equity, and inclusion are of utmost importance. The company believes that talent is everywhere but understands that opportunities are not. This phenomenon is particularly true for women globally who face unique obstacles to realizing their full potential, including health issues, securing a good education, and acts of violence. And hence, Turing is on a mission to unleash the world’s untapped human potential and level the playing field for women across the globe. In other words, Turing wants to inspire, accelerate, and support women through all stages of their careers.
To honor International Women’s Day and all the women at Turing, the company made donations to three nonprofit organizations focused on improving women’s lives in health, education, and ending violence directed toward women.
Breast Cancer Research Foundation: USA
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization devoted to ending breast cancer. The Foundation provides funding for cancer research worldwide to promote advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis, and survivorship.
Founded in 1993, BCRF has raised a billion dollars to fuel its mission to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. The Foundation seeks out the best minds in science and medicine and provides them the necessary resources to pursue their ideas through a unique grants program. This program enables researchers to make discoveries and design new approaches to address all aspects of breast cancer—and do so in record time.
Global Giving – Education for Every Girl in India
This project provides educational aid and supplies, including school fees, uniforms, books, sweaters, notebooks, pens, pencils, stationery, etc., to more than 500 underprivileged girls in rural Rajashtan, India’s third-lowest literate state. The initiative aims to support marginalized children, reduce the drop-out rate in schools, and improve access to education for children, especially young girls.
Support Women Building Lives Free from Violence in Argentina
Gender violence is prevalent across Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay. The lack of essential services and limited access to rapid and vital assistance put the women in these countries at constant risk of abuse. Grassroots organizations, generally based in remote locations, work as first responders for these communities. And thus, networking is key to reducing isolation and guaranteeing women’s rights in such communities.
Support Women Building Lives Free from Violence is a grassroots project that directly contacts gender-based violence survivors and advocates for their rights. The project aims to establish dedicated women’s networks to eradicate gender-based violence within these communities. Additionally, the project focuses on providing legal and psychosocial support, delivering training courses, disseminating information, sustaining women’s shelters and hotlines, and advocating for their rights.
The way ahead
Turing’s contributions are a humble step toward materializing its vision of empowering women to make the most of their potential. And so, Turing and its employees are proud to be partnering with the organizations mentioned above to support gender equality today for a sustainable tomorrow.
