IBM and Girls Who Code Partner to Advance Cognitive and Data Science Opportunities for Girls
IBM has witnessed firsthand the passion that Girls Who Code has for training, supporting and inspiring young women to choose careers in development and data science.
We have seen the relationship between IBM and Girls Who Code blossom over the past few years with IBM’s support of the Summer Immersion Programs.
We have also seen the ingenuity, creativity and promise these young developers can have when they build on cloud and cognitive.
IBM CEO Ginni Rometty and Girls Who Code CEO & Founder Reshma Saujani shared on stage at IBM InterConnect 2017 that both companies intend to expand their collaboration in the areas of education and training for young women who participate in Girls Who Code Clubs.
The intent is to make Cognitive Curriculum available for both current program members and alumni who aspire to pursue careers in development and data science in the form of online learning modules.
This proposed partnership is intended to advance technology inclusion, continuous learning and access to leading-edge training for young women interested in careers in development. Working together, IBM and Girls Who Code aspire to cultivate the cognitive natives of tomorrow.
