TCS Wins Corporate Social Responsibility Award for Ignite My Future in School Program

Posted On: 2019-12-02 23:05:38


Tata Consultancy Services' Educational Initiative was Recognized for Bringing Computational Thinking into Classrooms Across the U.S.

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, has been selected as this year's winner of the Organization for International Investment's (OFII) Corporate Social Responsibility Award.

OFII recognizes a member company each year for its outstanding efforts in corporate social responsibility (CSR). This award exemplifies the vast CSR achievements international companies have made in communities around the U.S.

TCS was selected for its Ignite My Future in School (IMFIS) program - a pioneering effort in partnership with Discovery Education, the leading provider of digital education content and professional development for K-12 classrooms. The program seeks to empower U.S. educators through a transdisciplinary teaching approach that integrates computational thinking into core subjects like math, science, art, and social studies. The program, offered free of charge, also includes instructional resources and year-round curriculum support, enabling students to obtain the necessary skills required for future careers across all industries.

"Across America, Ignite My Future in School is transforming the way educators, students and schools learn computational thinking as a foundational skill," said Surya Kant, President of North America, U.K. and Europe, TCS. "We are committed to empowering students with 21st century skills, expanding access and equity to opportunities in the new digital economy."

"More than half a million students are better prepared for the 21st century economy because of the significant investment TCS is making into our educational system," said Nancy McLernon, President and CEO, OFII. "They are a perfect example of how international companies benefit America's economy and workforce."

Research suggests that by 2020, there will be one million more computer science and technology related jobs in the U.S. than graduates qualified to fill them. IMFIS is the first and only solution that addresses the foundational skills gap that creates this shortfall, by leveraging computational thinking as a foundational and critical learning skill that is incorporated seamlessly within the school day and integrated into lesson plans.

Since its inception in 2017, IMFIS has reached over 10,000 teachers and nearly 600,000 students, with a goal of engaging 20,000 teachers and one million U.S. students by 2021. The program offers hands-on training delivered by Discovery Education experts and is launched in partnership with states, school districts, and schools via TECHademy events. Our barrier free platform also offers 65 readily available and subject relevant resources including lesson plans, curriculum connectors, family activities, and self-paced e-modules.

Shares of TATA CONSULTANCY SERVICES LTD. was last trading in BSE at Rs.2020.95 as compared to the previous close of Rs. 2052.7. The total number of shares traded during the day was 191856 in over 8371 trades.
