Around 2,500 Accenture employees teach an hour of code at local events in their communities, helping to inspire more than 10,000 students around the world to learn coding and computer science skills.

“As disruptive technologies advance and have a growing impact on society, a significant skills gap is also growing – so much so that already millions of jobs requiring STEM skills are unfilled worldwide,” said Paul Daugherty, Accenture’s chief technology & innovation officer and ‘chief coder.’ “It is critical that we equip today’s students – tomorrow’s workforce – with not just these skills, but also an understanding of how they can harness creativity and innovation to improve the way the world works and lives.”

This year’s Hour of Code follows the successful Accenture Intelligent Space Exploration, a coding tutorial focused on artificial intelligence (AI) which taught students to teach a robot to learn about a new animals, plants, new language, and conversing with inhabitants. Since its launch, there are around 110,000 individuals who benefited in the said course.

“By learning to code, kids will grow up understanding how humans and technology work together—an important first lesson in preparing for the future,” added Jill Huntley, global managing director for corporate citizenship at Accenture. “Hour of Code is a fantastic opportunity for Accenture volunteers to help to build New Skills Now all over the world.”
