Our Corporate Citizenship efforts empower the workforce of the future by partnering with nonprofit organizations that inspire today’s youth to pursue careers in technology education.
Girls Who Code
Citrix has partnered with Girls Who Code over several years in a variety of ways. We have sponsored the Summer Immersion program for high school girls and are a founding member of the College Loop program, supporting college students. We most recently worked with Girls Who Code on a matching donation fundraising effort in support of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery and Science
Citrix is the Innovation Partner for the Fort Lauderdale Museum of Discovery and Science and the newly-created Makerspace exhibit. This exhibit addresses the community’s growing need for STEM education. It offers students and visitors a variety of formal and informal learning activities ranging from robotics and electronics to 3D printing.
In addition to donating 10,000 STEM kits made by Citrix customers, partners and employees, Citrix supports STEM education by sponsoring Battle Bots competitions. Students from underserved schools get to build, code and battle their robots to inspire the next generation of future technologists.
Since 2016, Citrix India has contributed approximately $800K USD to help communities in need. We have created meaningful and measurable impact in the areas of education, healthcare, environment and sustainability, disability programs, child care, women in tech, tech incubators and support for Olympic athletes across marginalized states of the country.
It is wonderful to collaborate with such a sensitive and understanding funder like Citrix. The volunteers transformed the drab looking government school with the simple act of paint and hard work.
