Create Tomorrow at CA Technologies

In 2015, CA Technologies introduced Create Tomorrow, a Europe-wide programme designed to engage our workforce in programmes to help address the skills gap, and encourage more women to enter STEM related careers. The programme supported our pledge, made in October 2014, to the European Commission’s Grand Coalition for Digital Jobs, to respond to the major shortfall in STEM skills in Europe At CA Technologies, Create Tomorrow aligns our efforts within a framework that targets specific audiences, and aims to inspire, influence and lead.

There is a growing disengagement of young people with STEM subjects in school, and a decreasing interest in STEM careers. The decline is particularly noticeable in secondary school and is exacerbated by the parallel development of stark gender differences.

The UK’s key growth industries risk stalling unless the country tackles the loss of 50,000 talented girls a year from STEM jobs. Parents, schools, universities, business – we all need to cultivate positive attitudes and greater understanding among youngsters of the importance of STEM education and careers. In pre-school it means talking openly about the strengths of diversity, and actively encouraging boys and girls to participate in the same activities. In education, it means engaging students to realise the exciting and significant role of STEM in driving the future, and building confidence to pursue careers. In the workplace, it means creating a work environment that supports women, and tackles the issue of unconscious bias head-on through training, awareness and setting up the right goals.

Through Create Tomorrow, we are reaching and engaging secondary school students who are at an age when they are considering the roadmap to their future careers. Working with our customers and partners, we are delivering programmes that bring STEM to life, and are encouraging youngsters to really think about the incredible opportunities of working in STEM.

Employees play a central role in delivering Create Tomorrow by sharing their skills and volunteering their time to help youngsters understand the different careers in technology, and the subjects needed to get them there. Through talking with and mentoring school students, and leading hands-on initiatives, employees help to build awareness of the job opportunities available in the technology industry, and the different options available to build a career in technology. Through being involved in Create Tomorrow, female employees at CA Technologies are playing a key role as mentors to help build a balanced perception of technology careers, and inspiring young girls to consider future careers in STEM.

Over the last two years, through Create Tomorrow, CA Technologies has reached more than 6,000 under-18 secondary school pupils and university students, and of these more than 2,000 were females. Since the programme started, over 800 CA Technologies employees have been actively involved delivering this support across Europe.
