Supporting: The Community Technicians Project
“We believe that genuine community involvement by a corporate should extend a lot further than simply writing a cheque or dispensing free product. We want to promote the ‘hand up’ not the ‘hand out’ culture and engage in meaningful ways with those sectors where we can do most good”. - Katrina Troughton Managing Director IBM NZ.
IBM was delighted to be asked to be part of Digital Opportunities as it is a natural extension of IBM’s community relations activities.
These include ‘KidSmart’ – a fully funded programme which gives children in the early childhood sector access to education-related technology; and ‘TriScience’ - an innovative educational resource for 8 to 12 year olds designed to encourage young people to become captivated by science.
At IBM we’ve always believed that our business has many responsibilities. They begin of course, with our dedication to every client’s success and to ensuring that our shareholders profit from their investment and confidence in our company. But they extend equally to our relationships with our employees and to our commitment to use our technologies, expertise and influence to solve meaningful problems in business and society.
