The programme, which in this edition has reached more than 500 students, seeks to spark interest in digital careers from early ages.
The 4th edition of our initiative to encourage young people to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) careers has come to an end. This year we saw the participation of schools from Galicia and Madrid.
GenTech aims to promote interest in science and tech careers from early ages by bringing professionals closer to high school students. We work to dismantle stereotypes, show digital training as a tool for the future and emphasise the need to end the gender gap in STEM careers.
“At Altia, we want to awaken curiosity for tech among young people to promote interest in STEM careers. As a tech company, we are suffering from a significant shortage of talent and we need to work to turn this trend around, which will only be possible if we focus on young and inclusive talent”, said Josefina Fernández, Operations Director.
A space for conversation
GenTech provides a space for direct and casual conversation, allowing students to ask questions and raise their concerns before our specialised professionals. In this setting, GenTech speakers share their own experience and vision of science and technology, providing a glimpse of what it means to be a professional in the ICT sector.
A forward-looking programme
GenTech is part of the activities of the Digital Talent Promotion Plan of Galicia, DigiTalent 2030, promoted by Galicia’s Agency for Technological Modernisation (AMTEGA). We participate as one of the companies of the Galician Digital Pact to promote technological growth in the region.
The fourth edition of GenTech has had the participation of more than 500 students from 15 schools from the four provinces of Galicia (a region in the northwest of Spain) and this year also from Madrid. This was the first step in our efforts to extend this initiative to the whole of Spain.
