French technology major Capgemini has introduced Sakhi Drishtikon, an initiative to train and hire rural women graduates, post-graduates or diploma holders in technical subjects from economically-weaker families and bring them into the mainstream workforce.

Under this initiative, Capgemini would have 500 rural women from rural India joining its workforce by December end while, during calendar 2021, the firm expected 15% of its fresh hiring to come from rural talent.
