Technology sector

Our partnerships in the technology sector ensure that young people are developing the right skills for a digital economy.

Technology Sector

Established in 2002, the Technology Leadership Group (TLG), made up of over 50 companies, leads our work in the sector through fundraising, volunteering and pro-bono support. Together, we give diverse groups of young people a route into further education or employment, as well as helping to create a more vibrant talent pool for the technology industry.

A message from the Chair – Ursula Morgenstern, CEO Atos UK&I

Each year, our members give hope back to young people who have faced huge challenges in their lives. As well as doing the right thing for young people, the TLG also creates real value for businesses. Whether it’s increasing diversity in the industry or finding exciting ways to engage our employees, a partnership with The Prince’s Trust is a genuine win-win.
