Giving Community Investment.
One of CGI’s strategic goals is for its communities to be recognized as a caring and responsible corporate citizen. In collaboration with their clients and through the expertise of their consultants they strive to be a leader in encouraging and educating more young people to become technically literate, benefiting the well-being of our communities and building a workforce ready for the challenges of the 21st century. As technology continues to evolve, workforce development is critical not only for CGI, but for cities, towns and rural areas across the country adapting to revitalize their communities, retain homegrown talent and diversify their economies. Wherever CGI members work and serve clients, they bring a dedication not only to high performance and innovation, but a commitment to their communities as well.
CGI works to address a critical challenge for the IT services industry, the shortage of talent, particularly those from underrepresented populations, participating in the IT workforce. Through programs hosted across their global operations, they are inspiring young people by sharing their passion for high-tech careers and other professions that require training and education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Referred to as STEM@CGI, CGI hosts STEM camps across the country, along with numerous trainee and mentorship programs. During the day-long camps, students are introduced to software coding, computer hardware and other important IT skills.
CGI participates in the Veteran Jobs Mission, a coalition committed to helping transitioning service members and other veterans lead successful lives after their military service. They are also committed to offering various opportunities aimed at connecting, growing and inspiring women across the company.
CGI is committed to making our communities better and brighter. Embracing, encouraging and resourcing local and national efforts toward education, environmental sustainability, charitable giving and community engagement will always be a part of the company’s DNA, and will continue to drive their vision for a better future.
