Before the event concluded, SEAS professor Julie Ryan spoke to the group about the support women in engineering are able to offer each other as they move through their careers.
Ryan’s words clearly echoed with future alumna, Rhiannon Scanlon, SEAS BS ’14. “I had a wonderful time, and gained so much from the opportunity,” the student said. “Seeing SEAS alumnae so eager to give back and help the next generation of emerging engineers was inspiring, and I cannot wait to be one myself.”
At Square, we’ve built a culture that encourages collaboration, diversity, and entrepreneurship. With only 18% of computing jobs in the U.S. held by women, we knew we had to do something to close the gender gap. That “something” became our college Code Camp contest, a four-day immersion program developed to inspire, educate, and empower the next generation of women in technology.
