From business solutions to talent engagement, let i.c.stars curate a level of engagement to meet your needs.
Whether you participate in our leadership training program, special events or create employment opportunities for our graduates, joining the i.c.stars network increases your business value. Our partnership results in stronger leadership and staff development for your employees as connections are made and relationships are formed through the i.c.stars network. Your involvement with i.c.stars also helps shape the IT workforce and future landscape of the industry.
i.c.stars provides unique experiences for all levels of IT leadership. Participating in the i.c.stars community is a rare opportunity that aligns businesses with reinvesting in the community and shaping the IT workforce.
We believe that corporate culture is not a product or knowledge, but a process—the filter through which we perceive and learn about the world. i.c.stars creates experiences for our interns, sponsors, board members and volunteers to become aware of these filters as a way of connecting the IT community.
Becoming a Program Sponsor provides your company with a strategic organizational development opportunity that achieves the following business value:
- Innovative and diverse experiences for management and staff
- Increased Employee satisfaction through professional development
- Branding and visibility as an “employer of choice”
Employee satisfaction rates have been reported to significantly increase at partner organizations. Mentoring i.c.stars interns and graduates allows your staff to contribute to teaching the next generation of technology professionals. Additionally, business relationships created in a community service context are stronger because they are based on common values.
Four major events are held annually—roughly one each quarter—to bring our partners together for discussion, networking and continuing education. The business value for event sponsors comes from visibility and networking with C-level business and IT leaders.
Our special events bring together CIOs and other senior-level IT executives in addition to industry vendors and i.c.stars talent and staff. Your organization can benefit in various ways when sponsoring our events.
