The Titan Partnership is pleased to be a supporting partner of the Women in Tech Awards 2021. Previous winners of the Awards have supported our careers and employability programme in local schools, to ensure that students are aware of the wide range of opportunities in tech. One of Titan’s key priorities is equality, diversity and inclusion and we aim to ensure that all students are able to access information on the full range of opportunities available to them, including those which they may not previously have considered. By working in partnership with MWIT, we can help provide effective role models to our young people and raise awareness of careers in tech.
Titan is also committed to tackling tech poverty in Birmingham. Our ‘Computers for Children’ campaign seeks to raise money to purchase computers for local school students who do not have devices to access remote learning at home. When lockdown began in March 2020, a study carried out by Titan amongst its members revealed that more than 1000 children, in some of Birmingham’s most deprived areas did not have access to suitable devices or the internet at home. Our fundraising campaign set out to raise £200 000 to buy around 1000 devices. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues, so too has the need for devices and we continue to support as many students as possible across our member schools.
