Summer 2023

Hi Judy,

It's been a bustling Spring for Break Through Tech.

Last month 173 students completed Sprinternships™ (paid micro-internships) in Chicago and Miami with 18 different industry partners including companies like American Express and Accenture; and 500 students from over 115 different universities and colleges enrolled in our AI Program, which kicked off this month. 

None of this is possible without you, our valued industry partners. To that end, we are currently recruiting partners to provide real-world ML Project Challenges for teams of Break Through Tech AI students. Hosting an AI Studio Project Challenge is an opportunity for your organization to share what you do, hear fresh perspectives, and get early access to recruit from a pool of talented and diverse CS/STEM majors in your region – all while providing your employees with a high-impact DEI volunteering and leadership development opportunity. Click here for more information.

Together we are propelling more talented, diverse women into tech careers.
