The initiative which is being rolled out through Dentsu Aegis Network globally, Canada, the fourth market to launch, following findings from the 2018 Digital Society Index which showed that global citizens are concerned about the impact of digitization on future jobs and worry about not having the relevant digital skills to succeed.

"The Code is a critical initiative for us in Canada, by working closely with our schools and early careers programs coupled with bringing the power of our people and network, we're aiming to make a positive impact on the next generation of talent and wider society." said Leah Wilson VP, Talent.

The Code aims to tackle this by empowering the next generation to reap the benefits of the digital economy, through immersive workshops, mentoring, work experience opportunities and apprenticeships. With an ambitious global goal by 2020 to improve the digital skills of 100,000 young people, engage 50% of the Dentsu network in volunteering and foster a more diverse workforce in local markets. The initiative has already started in the Canadian market, with 80 students from Toronto and Vancouver participating in workshops throughout October.

If you are interested in running The Code in your school, contact Leah Wilson for more information.
