by Alexa Gitler

Coinciding with the 10-year anniversary of the goIT program, the 2020 Community Partnerships Series profiles some of the communities where TCS has had tremendous impact, shedding light on the progress that can be made when industries work collaboratively with communities and other sectors to diversify and grow the STEM workforce. Featuring individuals from across roles working with the program, the series sheds light on the reach and impact of the program across the United States.

As Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) signature community engagement program in North America for the last 10 years, goIT helps students design human centered solutions that harness technologies for innovation. This digital innovation program blends design thinking and industry expertise to provide students with the 21st century skills necessary to create technology for social good.

Through a standards-aligned engaging curriculum, students are introduced to the innovation lifecycle, product prototyping, and industry relevant entrepreneurial skills. The program ends with a high energy, idea- pitching culmination event. TCS employees serve as role models during the program by mentoring students, providing industry context and real-world connections.
