Back on Your Feet Program: Empowering Individuals Impacted by the Pandemic
The “Back on Your Feet” program was designed specifically to help educate individuals affected by the global COVID-19 pandemic. It offers a series of workshops and training sessions to empower individuals who may have lost their jobs due to the pandemic and want to increase their competitiveness in an increasingly tough marketplace.
SMU, a premier university in Asia, internationally recognized for its research and distinguished teaching, has developed the course content, including discussions on how to design, develop, and deploy analytic dashboards. “The pandemic has upended the lives and livelihoods of many around the world. As an engaged city university with a strong suite of expertise in computing research and education, the School of Computing and Information Systems is keen to contribute to this meaningful program by TIBCO through our partnership with She Loves Data to upskill and re-skill individuals impacted by the economic malaise, thereby creating a positive impact on the community in Singapore and beyond,” said Professor Pang Hwee Hwa, Dean of SMU School of Computing and Information Systems.
