FTI Consulting Partners With Code.org to Advance Global Access to Computer Science Education in EMEA
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, October 24, 2023 - FTI Consulting, Inc. (NYSE: FCN) has expanded its support to Code.org to help the non-profit organisation increase free access to computer science education for school-age children. FTI Consulting became a Code.org partner in 2022 and will now provide content creation, project management and hands-on execution to support the expansion of the organisation’s education programme across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (“EMEA”) region.
"We are proud to support Code.org’s mission to empower future generations, particularly young women and other underrepresented groups, with equal access to computer education and skills,” said Lars Faeste, EMEA Chairman of FTI Consulting. “Aligned with our commitment to diversity, inclusion and belonging, we believe diverse teams are not only collectively smarter and more innovative but also fundamentally more successful. We welcome the opportunity to use our expertise to close the technical skills gap and better prepare young people for the tech-driven future.”
As a Code.org partner, FTI Consulting is actively involved in efforts to expand computer science education across the EMEA region by working to define goals and formulate country-specific implementation strategies.
To date, several Memorandums of Understanding ("MoU") have been signed with governments and private companies to jointly pursue strategies that will enhance the computer science curricula, secure funding to train educators and raise awareness by leveraging high-profile events, including COP28, United Arab Emirates ("UAE") Codes and World Government Summit.
Alberto Pamias, a Dubai-based Senior Managing Director at FTI Delta, added, “Our long-term collaboration with Code.org is a project of special relevance for our firm. Striving to give every child around the world an opportunity to learn coding and computer science is a very ambitious goal, but the impact it will have in today’s disadvantaged regions and communities will be significant in terms of its ability to develop critical skills at an early age and provide access to the increasingly highly skilled world of work. At FTI Consulting, we are fully committed to this effort.”
