Credit Suisse Teams Up with Girls Who Code

Credit Suisse announced that for the first time it has teamed up with Girls Who Code, the international nonprofit working to close the gender gap in technology, as a corporate partner for its signature Summer Immersion Program. This marks Credit Suisse’s first year as a corporate sponsor.

Credit Suisse will be hosting its inaugural class of students in a two-week virtual program that teaches girls the computer science skills they need to make an impact in their community and prepare for a career in technology.

Participants in the program include rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school with no prior computer science experience.

Marinela Tudoran, Global Head of Equities Technology at Credit Suisse said, “We are excited to welcome our first incoming class to the Girls Who Code Summer Immersion Program. Credit Suisse is committed to supporting the careers of young women in technology, who will in turn help shape the future of technology for the better. Through this program, we hope that these young women will not only learn how to code, but also understand the potential for a long-term career in technology.”

Credit Suisse’s Summer Immersion Program runs from July 20 through July 31, and the bank will virtually host 34 students during the duration of the program.

Credit Suisse will also organize a mentoring panel featuring recent graduates that have joined Credit Suisse’s Technical Associate Program, offering students the opportunity to learn from Credit Suisse employees who are just beginning their careers in technology.

The bank’s program will also provide access to Credit Suisse’s senior technology leaders, who will share their career experiences and perspectives and help students learn about the various roles in technology.
