Community

We’re passionate about our community

Intelliware’s employees actively volunteer, coach and lead local community groups, youth activities, charities and broader green initiatives. We believe it is important to contribute to the community in which we live and work.

We remain steadfast in our support of diversity and STEM education.

Women Who Code – Toronto

Women Who Code envision a world where women are proportionally represented as technical leaders, executives, founders, VCs, board members, and software engineers. Intelliware shares that vision, and has partnered with their Toronto chapter to help them with it.  The organization provides an avenue for women to pursue a career in technology, help them gain new skills and hone existing skills for professional advancement, and foster environments where networking and mentorship are valued.

Parkdale Collegiate Institute

Intelliware provides two $1,000 scholarships to students pursuing post-secondary mathematics or computer science programs. The recipients exemplify leadership, innovation and/or an emphasis on collaboration at Parkdale Collegiate. We extended our initial five-year commitment by another five years to encourage and support the bright young minds looking to pursue a career in computer software and/or technology.

 

Take Our Kids to Work Day

The Learning Partnership is a national charitable organization dedicated to support, promote and advance publicly funded education in Canada. Their Take Our Kids to Work Day is a big event for Intelliware every year. We host our own employees’ grade 9 students and provide opportunities for others interested in software development as a career. The annual full-day event includes hands-on coding exercises to give the students more exposure to programming.

Ada Lovelace Day Celebration

Intelliware’s Annual Ada Lovelace Day Celebration is an afternoon event hosted by Intelliware that invites students from local schools between the ages of 13-18 to learn about and engage with women working in STEM.

We’re active with local and national organizations.

The Toronto Agile Community

Intelliware continues to actively participate in and support the Agile community as a founding member and regular contributor to the Toronto Agile Community. TAC is a non-profit, volunteer group bringing Agile enthusiasts together and expanding Agile practices in the Greater Toronto Area. This year we sponsored both the Agile Open Space and the highly successful annual Toronto Agile Community Conference which this year, it’s 9th year, will be bigger and better than ever.

Paralympic Foundation of Canada

Intelliware is a Circle of Champions Silver level supporter of the Paralympic Foundation of Canada, and has supported their efforts significantly with a large donation helping the Canadian Wheelchair Basketball Team for the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil. The Paralympic Foundation of Canada’s goal is to ensure that the programs, equipment and people are in place to propel more Canadians with a disability all the way from their communities to the Paralympic podium. Intelliware sees this as an important mission, and feels we need to do our part to help the Foundation get there.

We sponsor teams for annual fundraising.

We sponsor local associations and sports teams.
