Teen-Turn

More women with technology qualifications would affect employment rates, economic growth, and fulfill the demand for skills needed by companies that is currently outpacing supply.

Teen-turnships provide an opportunity to experience what a career in technology could be.

While corporate social responsibility is now more of a priority for organizations, competitive advantage need not be divorced from engagement plans if the strategy includes a social value proposition that provides a return on the investment. 

Oisin Hurley, VP Engineering

Swrve 

"I’m delighted that Swrve is taking part in this excellent social program this year — so often young women are turned off technology careers, even by their peers and parents, and an opportunity to combat that and create a new generation of female role models for tech is absolutely an opportunity worth grasping. It’s a small step to bettering the industry as a whole".

Yet teens often struggle to imagine what life might be like after university–at the very time they are making third level qualification choices.

Teen-turnships provide teen girls an opportunity to experience what a career in technology could be. 

While corporate social responsibility is now more of a priority for organizations, competitive advantage need not be divorced from engagement plans if the strategy includes a social value proposition that provides a return on the investment. 

Teen-Turnships are ethical, commercial and tactical in that they aim to contribute to a talent pool from which companies can hire. 

While evaluating outreach with respect to commercial opportunity may seem to challenge ethical ideology, workplace diversity is not only compelling from a corporate social responsibility standpoint, there is also a pressing case for the resultant productivity and adaptability. 

Companies offering Teen-Turnships contribute to a programme that will generate future hires who are skilled and representative of the population as a whole by influencing third level qualification choices by women. 

Investment in workplace diversity is good economic sense and socially responsible, with variety of skills, creativity in multiple viewpoints, and breadth of service proven advantages.
