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.
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.

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."
