Socioeconomic mobility is one of the most pervasive and long-standing issues in our society. Disparities in education and employment, among other key factors, create inequities in a person’s financial health and overall well-being. By taking a stand on critical social issues facing our communities, and advocating for equal treatment and opportunity of groups and individuals, we can drive meaningful change.

This February, Capital One is building on our Impact Initiative—a $200 million multi-year commitment to support growth in underserved communities and promote socioeconomic mobility by closing gaps in equity and opportunity. 

The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and DFW Alliance of Technology and Women (DFW*ATW) are among the many non-profit partners we support.  As a part of our commitment to their members, we are proud to help with programming to upskill their constituents.  Moreover, Capital One, believes in the power of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) public cloud and has realized first-hand the innovation that it provides.

In partnership with the NSBE and DFW*ATW, Capital One is launching a workforce development program that equips participants with a seat in an instructor-led Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Practitioner virtual certification boot camp. Participants will receive access to take the exam and small-group study sessions, resume advice, interview training and ongoing development, ensuring they have the relevant skills and certification needed in today’s workforce, while creating equitable access and increased career opportunities across the tech sector overall.

“At Capital One, we are passionate about unleashing potential and helping people thrive in a rapidly changing employment market,” said Marissa Horne, VP, Financial Services Tech & Data, Technology Strategy & Governance, Capital One. “This program was inspired by the need for tech talent and desire to ensure that talent reflects the customers we serve and the communities in which we live. We believe this will change the trajectory of participants’ lives with holistic job training.”

Capital One is engaged in workforce development programs across our footprint. Learn more about these programs at CapitalOne.com/About.
