Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, was recognized in "The 2018 Civic 50" as one of America’s 50 most community-minded companies by Points of Light, the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service. The Civic 50 provides a national standard for superior corporate citizenship and showcases how companies can use their time, skills and other resources to improve the quality of life in the communities where they do business and drive noticeable change.

“In the fifth year of honoring the most community-minded companies in the nation, The Civic 50 truly highlights the commitment to community and civic engagement of America’s leading brands,” said Jennifer Lawson, president of networks at Points of Light. “By elevating critical stakeholder voices from employees, customers and communities into their mission statements, The Civic 50 companies are putting themselves at the center of change to create more enduring and sustainable business models.”

TCS’ flagship student engagement program, goIT, has engaged more than 13,000 middle and high school students across 54 cities in the United States and Canada with hands-on experiences in computer science, inspiring them towards tech careers in all sectors. Launched in March 2017, Ignite My Future in School will engage 20,000 teachers and more than one million students over the next five years to prepare them for 21st century careers. In partnership with Discovery Education, Ignite My Future in School will enable educators, administrators and school districts to become ambassadors of a transdisciplinary approach and introduce computational thinking within the context of core subjects such as English, mathematics, social studies, science, and the arts.

TCS has been a leading STEM education proponent for the past decade, through highly scalable cross-sector initiatives such as US2020, Million Women Mentors (MWM) and national partnerships with STEMConnector, Npower, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
