Abstract

Research Brief: Immigrant Women, e-Skills, and Employability in Europe summarizes the findings of the larger study. It found computer training is an important resource for immigrant women. NGO training programs help trainees develop both technical skills and non-technical social and cultural skills, and strengthen and diversify their social networks. The social, learning environments nurtured by NGOs are key resources for immigrant women as they settle and integrate in Europe.
