We are thrilled to announce that Mission Impact has now rebranded as Mia (Mission Impact Academy)
Mia is a JobTech company bridging the gap between education and employment. We are helping women develop new skills and build careers in emerging technologies.
By integrating skill-based learning, cutting-edge technology, and a supportive community, Mia empowers women with the skills of the future needed to thrive in the fast-evolving workforce.
Our mission is to unlock new economic opportunities for one million women and accelerate the impact of one billion women by 2030.
The future of work is driven by the world's largest untapped resource, women.
In a world facing a global tech talent shortage, investing in education, well-being, and the development of women's talent is more important than ever.
By doing so, we not only help to close the gender gap in the tech industry, but we also build a more diverse and innovative workforce that can help companies grow and stay competitive in today's fast-paced, tech-driven world.

⚫ Thank you, Davos World Economic Forum week 2023!
According to World Economic Forum, 1 billion jobs will be transformed by technology in the next decade. The global talent shortage could reach more than 85 million people by 2030. The issue is not a shortage of workers – but a lack of workers with the right skills.
A major topic in the future of work discussions was the importance of a skills-first approach to evaluating employees and new hires. The forum highlighted these significant issues that Mia addresses and aims to solve. It was also clear that unlocking new job opportunities for talent from diverse backgrounds will help us build a more inclusive and innovative workforce.
We are thrilled to announce that Jake Hirsch-Allen has joined our team as an advisor to help us grow Mia and unlock economic opportunities for women in emerging technologies.
Jake builds public-private partnerships between North America’s governments, workforce development organizations, colleges and universities, and LinkedIn Talent Solutions. We look forward to working with Jake and leveraging his deep industry knowledge to take Mia to the next level.
As we enter the second quarter of 2023, we are thrilled to expand our Mia team and build programs and initiatives that will drive massive impact in the lives of many women looking to lead the way in emerging tech.
We will be scaling the Mia Learning Network with resources, live workshops, and roundtables led by the Mia community and industry professionals.
