Modis Announces Partnerships with Women in Technology International and Project Lead The Way

Modis aims to strengthen diversity, inclusion and professional development in the workforce

Modis, a leader in IT and engineering workforce solutions, announced two new partnerships with Women in Technology International (WITI) and Project Lead The Way (PLTW). These partnerships reflect Modis’ continued focus on enriching diversity and inclusion efforts within the organization and across the industries it serves.

With a global reach of over 2 million, WITI, alongside its powerful affiliates, serves as a platform that helps women advance by providing connections, resources and opportunities in the technology industry. With this partnership, Modis employees will have access to networking opportunities, a series of national conferences and regional events, educational webinars, publications and much more.

“Not only are we committed to making strides in diversity and inclusion within the IT and engineering fields, but internally as well,” said Ger Doyle, president of Modis U.S. “With these partnerships, we look forward to supporting women inside and outside of Modis throughout every step of their career.”

Modis’ partnership with PLTW also speaks to this commitment while simultaneously addressing the need to build up talent pipelines. PLTW is dedicated to inspiring students and transforming the teaching experience in the areas of computer science, engineering and biomedical science. Through this partnership, Modis will participate in PLTW’s School Grant Program – enabling high school students in underserved school districts to develop and apply in-demand, transportable skills by exploring real-world challenges.

These partnerships also align with Modis’ ongoing relationship with General Assembly, through the Modis Academy: a strategic training program aimed at preparing candidates with the right foundation and skill set to pursue a career in computer science and software development. Those who graduate from this program have access to a network of more than 4,000 employers across industries, sizes and regions.

“Candidates from a diverse background bring to the table a new way of thinking and innovation,” added Doyle. “We’re passionate about fostering these types of partnerships, as our industry is faced with solving new challenges each and every day.”

Through the formation of an employee-based culture committee two years ago, Modis has implemented internal ventures to promote diversity within the organization, as well as across technology and engineering sectors. The partnerships with WITI and PLTW are the result of these efforts, as Modis looks to transform the industry by creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce in the U.S.
