TEKsystems

Partner Since

2015

About the partnership

Since 2015, TEKsystems has evolved its partnership with Per Scholas from a hiring and funding partner to a customized training partner, helping launch nine training campuses including  Baltimore, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, and Seattle. TEKsystems’ support was also critical to the prior launch of our Atlanta, Dallas and National Capital Region campuses. Collectively, more than 4,000 learners have been trained across these 12 campuses since 2014.

TEKsystems team members participate as members of Advisory Boards in multiple markets as well as on Per Scholas’ national Board of Directors, and have held more than 50 volunteer events across the country since 2016. TEKsystems has helped more than 400 Per Scholas graduates attain jobs either directly with TEKsystems or with their clients.

TEKsystems and Per Scholas further work together on how to diversify the tech world, including fostering a national dialogue about equity and inclusion through the support of Per Scholas’ Diverse by Design (DxD) conversation series. Franklin Reed, Executive Director, Inclusion and Diversity at TEKsystems, chairs our Diverse by Design Advisory Board, helping to provide key strategic guidance for our DxD initiatives. TEKsystems has also supported Per Scholas’ efforts to enroll more women learners, supporting more than 1,200 women learners since 2019.
