"Our goal is to enable women to gain current technology skills by removing barriers such as hefty tuition fees, access to gender-friendly training and lack of time. When you take one of these two foundational programs, you will begin your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Professional in Azure Cloud and/or Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning."
At Microsoft we are guided by a commitment to build a diverse partner ecosystem and support greater opportunities for women in technology, says Rodney Clark, CVP, Channel Sales and Channel Chief, Microsoft.

As the founder of Directions Training, my life has been enriched through our ability to provide technology training to some of the top companies around the world. We created this unique program with The WIT Network and Microsoft to empower other women to gain the skills and the confidence they need to grow a career in technology.

One of my goals is to obtain the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals certification. As a fairly new Support Engineer in Azure Data Movement, with this certification I believe I will have a better understanding of Azure technologies and therefore I will be able to utilize the knowledge and skills gained to enhance my career, increase my customers support skills, and provide viable knowledge shares and support to others who are coming into a support role for Azure technology.
The technology industry has always, and will always, be such a dynamic environment with ample opportunities to learn. Given the current environment, digital transformation is at a forefront and will continue to be an integral initiative within organizations. This opportunity provided me the chance to deepen my knowledge and understanding while adding additional value to my customers. For that I am extremely grateful for the Cloud Power Scholarship Program!

We are excited to be expanding this partnership to reach more women and enable them to deepen their knowledge, skills and confidence to continue growing their careers in technology.
