Investing in the future of young women

Avanade has a mission to enable young people (especially young women) to achieve more through the power of our people and digital innovation.

We care about the people and places where we work and want to make a genuine human impact by inspiring the business and technology leaders of the future. We care about the future digital workforce, and in particular the diversity of that workforce. And we recognise the importance of attracting more young women to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines. That’s why we created the Avanade STEM Scholarship.

Our STEM Scholarship invests in the future of young women and offers internships, mentoring and a support network to help recipients achieve their education and career growth. We have partnerships with 16 prestigious universities around the world — and since the program’s launch in 2015, we have provided scholarships to over 120 young women, added 80 mentees and 12 students have started a career with Avanade.

Collaboration with leading companies ensures that we deliver the right digital solution for you and your customers.
