Intergen recognised for contribution to youth in ICT

11 May 2015

Soon after being crowned winner in two categories at the annual Microsoft Partner Awards, Intergen has now been announced as a finalist in the annual CIO Awards.

The awards recognise major contributors to the ICT community. Intergen is one of four finalists in the Engaging Youth in ICT category.

Intergen’s Head of Marketing and Communications, Diane Hannay, says it’s great to be recognised for the breadth of initiatives we’re involved in to encourage youth into IT.

“Our graduate programme began over a decade ago in universities, and has seen over 120 young people mentored into the ICT industry. Many of them have grown into leadership roles and a few have gone offshore to work in our Australian offices,” she says. 

“Recently we’ve begun connecting with students as early as intermediate school level. Last year, we also helped support a group from Wellington East Girls College on a tour of Silicon Valley that included a visit to Microsoft world headquarters.”

In conjunction with Victoria University, Intergen also established the Young Achiever Awards in 2014 to recognise and encourage the brightest first year students in Information Systems.

The CIO Award winners will be announced at a gala dinner on June 9. 

Intergen’s 2016 graduate programme intake has just begun, and the company is encouraging talented students to apply. For more information visit www.intergen.co.nz/graduates/
