"One of our goals is to ensure that as many people as possible have the key skills to take advantage of modern technology. This excellent initiative will help to encourage girls to take a greater interest in computers and internet technology and perhaps consider it as a career choice."
Ronan Miles, BT
"Some of the most rewarding careers are in IT, because it involves creativity and innovation. Technology is very much at the forefront of business success nowadays, not at all the ‘geeky’ back-office stereotype that the industry has developed throughout the years. We are delighted to be sponsoring CC4G and are committed to supporting and encouraging more ladies to get into IT through initiatives like this."
Sheila Flavell, FDM Chief Operating Officer
"There are few careers more relevant, creative, varied and rewarding than IT – it touches everything – and Britain is good at it! We need to find the best talent and what makes that doubly difficult is not enough girls are exploring IT as a potential career. CC4G is a practical, fun, safe way for them to get them involved"
Craig Wilson, HP Enterprise Services, Managing Director and VP, UK and Ireland
"Helping girls to understand that technology can lead to an exciting course or career is incredibly important. It’s important for these girls’ own hopes and dreams; for the industry to improve its gender balance and for the UK as a whole to make the most of our talented young women. And so I am delighted to sponsor CC4G at Phoenix High School, which is local to both where I live and work."
"We at Quicksilva know how important it is to get girls excited about technology, whether for future studies or careers. They have the potential to make a real impact on the industry by bringing their creativity, energy and passion. The more of them that choose to enter IT in the UK, the greater our pool of talent and the stronger the industry will become. That’s why we’re thrilled to sponsor CC4G at The Corsham School and help to inspire this generation of girls about careers in technology."
Gayna Hart, MD Quicksilva
"Having witnessed firsthand the impact of the clubs last year, and level of interest shown by the girls that participated we were keen to get involved for a second year. I am confident that the clubs will do much to encourage more female students to at least be more open to the idea of using ICT and to consider taking their interest further into their studies and future careers."
