Fall 2023

Hi Judy,

It has been a transformative year for more than 1,000 college women and non-binary students in our programs:

  • At our Sprinternships™ in Miami, Chicago, New York, and DC, 51 organizations across all sectors hosted 505 students. As you may know, the Sprinternship™ is a paid, 3-week micro-internship experience that takes place during the academic breaks.

  • For the Break Through Tech AI program, over 500 women and non-binary students from across the nation completed their ML Foundations Skills course, part 1 of the 10-month program.

Now, the AI students will move on to work in teams and apply what they've learned to solve real business challenges presented by partners like KPMG, Bitly, CVS, Verizon, American Express and many others. Witness the enthusiasm and diversity of our students by watching this compelling 60-second clip from our recent event on August 14 in New York. 

Building a diverse workforce directly impacts your ability to innovate, serve customers, attract top talent, and manage risks, to name a few advantages. Moreover, it aligns with ethical considerations and the expectations of an increasingly diverse and socially conscious world.

If you'd like to learn more, reply here and let me know.

All the best,

Judith Spitz

Founder and Executive Director
