What better time than the summer to learn new skills? Credit Suisse has joined forces with Girls Who Code, an organisation that works to bridge the gender gap in technology, to launch its summer immersion programme.
This is the third year in a row that Credit Suisse has worked with the organisation as a corporate partner, and for this educational project, the bank will run a two-week programme from August 1 to 12. In this new edition, some 60 selected high school students will have the opportunity to acquire the technical skills and professional network necessary to make an impact and prepare for a successful future career in technology.
In addition, the bank will hold a series of mentoring sessions focusing on cyber and information security awareness, personal branding, CV writing and technology career paths. Beyond technical skills, students will also meet inspirational speakers, ranging from senior bank executives to a panel of technical analysts from the bank.
Marinela Tudoran, Head of Investment Bank Technology at Credit Suisse, said: “We are excited for this opportunity to invest in the next great technological minds in the financial services industry. At Credit Suisse, we are passionate about creating a culture of empowered engineering.
“This programme aims to open doors for students by providing a network of knowledgeable mentors in computer science and engineering across the bank. Together, we will work to lay the foundation to continue to diversify the pipeline of technologists working on Wall Street.”
