|Leah Johnson and Ayan Ahmed recently |
spoke to WLiT members about
their experiences in Genesys Works.
At the February event, two of our students, Ayan Ahmed (Al Amal High School) and Leah Johnson (Central High School), spoke to the WLiT members about their experiences as Genesys Works young professionals in the technology field. Ayan and Leah shared the ways that Genesys Works’ program has impacted them: from developing their speaking and presentation abilities, to their skills with hands-on technology, as well as helping to eliminate stereotypes about who a technology professional might be. They both expressed their desire to join the ranks of Women Leading in Technology someday. As you can imagine, the members in attendance were impressed by these talented young women, and encouraged them to attend WLiT events in the future.
At their next quarterly event on Tuesday, May 21st, Women Leading in Technology will feature a panel discussion on the new book by Sheryl Sandberg, Lean In. The professionals from WLiT will also kick off the summer clothing drive for Genesys Works annual Suit Up program, collecting and organizing thousands of items of professional clothing that will allow our students to make a good impression on the first day of their first corporate job.
We’d like to thank the members of WLiT for their generous support of the students and mission of Genesys Works as we work together to develop our next generation of IT leaders.
