TECHNOLOGYONE TEAMS UP WITH TECH GIRLS MOVEMENT

TECHNOLOGYONE (ASX:TNE) has partnered with non-profit organisation Tech Girls Movement to promote diversity in the IT industry.

The movement encourages more girls to pursue technology studies and careers to ultimately improve technology for society.

The Brisbane-based enterprise software provider has signed a partnership as paramount sponsor alongside Google, Fairfax Media and Queensland University of Technology.

Tech Girls Movement founder Jenine Beekhuyzen says TechnologyOne's ideals align strongly with the goals of the organisation.

"What we love so much about working with TechnologyOne is their strong commitment to diversity and their dedication to supporting the next generation of female technology leaders," Beekhuyzen says.

"This exciting new partnership assists to take the Tech Girls Movement to the global stage, with TechnologyOne supporting the 2015 winners of the Search for the Next Tech Girls Superhero to go to San Francisco in July this year for the global Technovation pitch.

"The team received an honorary invitation as the inaugural winners of the Technovation program in Australia last year, providing an opportunity for the girls to position their work among the global entries."

TechnologyOne executive chairman Adrian Di Marco (pictured) says the partnership is part of the company's commitment to fostering young talent and addressing the shortage of STEM professionals in Australia.

"It is critical that we, as an Australian software company, get students interested in technology to sustain and grow our national technology industry," Di Marco says.

"In order to address the current shortage of women in technology, we believe it is important that we support movements like this, which encourage a more diverse workforce.

"Our goal in joining the Tech Girls Movement is to inspire more women to study STEM and pursue careers in the IT industry."

The partnership follows a Girl Geek Dinner networking event hosted by TechnologyOne and Amazon Web Services earlier this month.

The company is also a national sponsor of IT careers conference BiG Day In aimed at high school and university students.
