GUEST BLOG: Inspiring The Next Generation - TEKsystems

In 2022 we were delighted to welcome TEKsystems onboard as a new Strategic Partner. Hayley Duncan, Senior Marketing Executive, shares the impact the partnership has had so far.

At TEKsystems, we partner with organisations whose missions match our purpose – creating significant opportunity and fulfilment for our customers, consultants, and each other. We work side-by-side with organisations that engage with diverse groups of technology professionals, and we’re committed to leveraging our market position to foster a diverse pipeline of future technology talent.

Our passion for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) extends beyond rhetoric. We have a three-pillar approach to DEI: workplace, workforce and marketplace. Partnerships, such as that with Tech She Can, enable us to drive our strategy forward within each of these pillars. 

Inspiring young people to get into technology
As a strategic partner to Tech She Can, our aim is to support their mission to make sure that everyone has an equal opportunity to have a fulfilling career in technology, and for women to play a role in how our world works, looks, thinks and feels. 

Since establishing the partnership in 2022, we’re proud to have already made an impact. With 13 trained and approved champions, TEKsystems have successfully delivered lessons and assemblies to more than 1,000 children across 15 schools throughout the UK, covering topics such as Technology in Gaming, Fashion, Space and Sports.

The feedback we’ve received from teachers has been very positive:

“STEM topics have become an increasingly important part of our curriculum, and the fast-moving development of technology means that it is crucial that children grow up comfortable working with different technologies and are able to adapt to new developments as they evolve. Through the STEM ambassadors programme, we were able to access Sarah and Hayley from Tech She Can who delivered excellent workshops based around the themes of technology in gaming and e-sports. This was particularly engaging for our pupils as it based their learning in a context with which they were familiar and introduced them to different prospective careers within technology.”
Rona F, Teacher, Rosewell Primary School, Edinburgh

“Lauren from Tech She Can delivered an extremely professional and engaging lesson which catered to the needs of all learners and left the children with a heightened sense of the opportunities for them in the technology world. The session was presented in a very interactive way, and I would highly recommend other schools to get involved in these sessions.”
Lizzie S, Teacher, Ark Swift Primary School, West London

Champions for change
Inspiring and educating children and young people about careers in technology wouldn’t be possible without the passion, enthusiasm and time volunteered by our team of champions. At TEKsystems, we value Inclusion and Personal and Professional Growth, therefore, becoming part of a wider Tech She Can champion network is an opportunity in which our people are delighted to be involved.

Hear what our champions have to say:
"It’s amazing to see the children get excited about what their futures could be. A lot of them had never considered a career in technology and it's really rewarding to think we're opening up a new potential career path for them. I was so inspired after delivering the lessons, and I can't wait to get back into schools and deliver more."
Lauren Adams ~ Senior Communications Executive, London

Tech She Can is on a mission for an equal future. To inspire and shape a workplace where young people, especially girls, pursue technology careers and have equal opportunity to participate in all jobs of the future. We look forward to expanding our champion network and continuing to align our efforts with Tech She Can’s strategic priorities in 2024.
