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.
