CGI’s global Dream Connectors initiative advances our longstanding tradition of supporting the local communities in which we live and work. It encourages all of our consultants to contribute to the development and well-being of their communities through technology and volunteerism.
Three core objectives are behind Dream Connectors:
Tech 4 Good
Through Dream Connectors, our consultants demonstrate the positive impact that technology has on our communities.
Dream Connectors advances CGI’s core values, company dream, commitment to local communities, intrapreneurship focus, and client proximity model.
Dream Connectors brings together CGI consultants from across the globe to benefit local communities through global collaboration and teamwork.
Every year, CGI consultants propose Dream Connectors project ideas and a committee selects the best projects for a company-wide vote. Winning projects receive CGI support in the form of technology, funding and volunteers.
