The Technology Impact Awards are the longest-running and largest technology award program in BC, celebrating the achievements of cutting-edge technology companies, people, and innovation that put the province on the map. These awards celebrate worldwide impact, world-class talent and one tight-knit community. The Community Engagement category recognizes companies that embrace corporate social responsibility.
“We’re thrilled to recognize Allocadia as leaders of community engagement in BC,” said Rocky Ozaki, VP Community at BC Tech. “The team is setting new standards for organizations to follow in building a corporate culture that engages employees, and has a positive impact on the community in which they live, work, and play.”
“We believe BC is the best place to grow a technology company,” said Kristine Steuart, CEO and Co-Founder of Allocadia. “With over 150,000 technology workers and a thriving entrepreneurial ecosystem, the resources of BC have been a cornerstone of our success. Our team is committed to giving back, and fostering a strong, healthy community through corporate social responsibility. We’re grateful to the BC Tech organization for recognizing our efforts, and offer congratulations to all the finalists and winners, who we consider part of our extended BC family.”
Allocadia is dedicated to supporting a broad range of community initiatives through donations, strategic giving and employee volunteer activities. Most recently, the company participated in Vancouver’s Tech Got Talent lip sync battle, raising money for local Vancouver charities.
As one of many growing tech companies in Vancouver, the company participates in events such as #TechPong, raising funds for organizations in Vancouver’s Downtown East Side alongside a number of neighboring tech companies. They also organize Quarterly Volunteer events, to give back as a team, with beneficiaries including The Vancouver Food Bank and the BC Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
The company empowers girls and women to pursue technology and entrepreneurship by supporting causes including Girls Learning Code, BeLikeAda, and the B.C. Science Fair Fun Run. Recently, Allocadia partnered with Simon Fraser University to send women in the School of Computing Science to attend technology conferences across North America. The company also provides an incubator space for women entrepreneurs, allowing them to use its downtown office space to accelerate growth and enable success.
To foster charitable donations, the company contributes to both local and national efforts through a staff matching fund with the help of Kiva and Chimp. By participating in Movember, a global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health, the company has raised thousands for this cause.
