The month of June was an important month for ITJuana with the celebration of its anniversary. This special milestone was commemorated by giving back to the community with two activities: PPE donations to hospitals in Tijuana and the Artificial Intelligence virtual workshop.
Thanks that the software industry has remained stable during these difficult times of COVID-19, ITjuana decided to carry out these initiatives, to demonstrate how grateful we are by having a great job and working on amazing products over the Cali-Baja Mega Region.
1) Donations PPE equipment to the Tijuana Hospitals
Hospitals and medical centers in Tijuana are experiencing tremendous pressure with new cases of COVID and not enough basic equipment to protect their doctors and nurses on site, so ITJuana decided to contribute with PPE donations.
We achieved our goal of $10,000 USD! After one month of collecting donations, we closed the fundraising with great progress. We were able to collect $2,500 from donors in Mexico and the US. ITJuana matched every dollar contributed, this took us to a total of $5,000.
Our company also partnered with other software companies in the region and we were able to collect another $5,000 from the tech community.
2) Workshop “Artificial Intelligence: Medical Diagnosis”. During June, we resumed our workshop series; this time we hosted a remote session open to anyone interested in learning about AI (artificial intelligence). We believe in talent development, and sharing knowledge is one of the best ways we can give back to our community.
This year, ITJuana celebrated this anniversary by giving back to our beloved Tijuana. We are sure that we can all contribute in our own way to help TJ recover and continue providing amazing software talent to the region!
