Amnesty International is a global human rights movement with more than seven million members around the world. It was founded in 1961 to draw attention to human rights abuses and campaign for compliance with international laws and standards.Amnesty has been conducting human rights education (HRE) for more than 20 years, aimed at creating a world where people know their rights and are empowered to claim them. More recently, a major part of its HRE strategy focused on implementing an e-learning platform to help build communities across the world that are empowered by their knowledge of human rights.To achieve this, Amnesty needed a flexible training platform, available in different languages, capable of building different learning experiences for different audiences. It turned to Docebo to implement a learning strategy and e-learning platform that could span the globe.Today, the Amnesty Human Rights Academy currently delivers more than 30 courses to 45,000 learners in English, Arabic, Spanish, French, Russian and German.

Tectonic shifts in society and business occur when unexpected events force widespread experimentation around a new idea. During World War II, for instance, when American men went off to war, women proved that they could do “men’s” work — and do it well. Women never looked back after that. Similarly, the Y2K problem demanded the extensive use of Indian software engineers, leading to the tripling of employment-based visas granted by the U.S. Fixing that bug enabled Indian engineers to establish their credentials, and catapulted them as world leaders in addressing technology problems. Alphabet, Microsoft, IBM, and Adobe are all headed by India-born engineers today.
