Capgemini Volunteers with Per Scholas for Mock Interviews and Women’s History Month Panel
Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology services, and digital transformation, has partnered with Per Scholas to unlock potential in our learners and alumni. In addition to hiring many of our alumni for their internship program, Capgemini works closely with Per Scholas learners through corporate engagement events including mock interviews and panel discussions.
This March, Capgemini participated in two mock interview sessions and one panel for Women’s History Month, all hosted virtually for Per Scholas learners. As corporate volunteers, Capgemini participants play a critical role in Per Scholas’ training by helping aspiring technologists improve their communication skills, learn about key technical content, and better understand varied corporate cultures.
During the Women’s History Month panel, Capgemini leaders discussed women in tech and the importance of diversifying a typically male-dominated industry to include more women. Panelists included Shikha Thakare, Portfolio Manager, FS BCM; Lakisha Burke, Director, Invent BCM; Ann-Marie Birns, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley; Charisma Glassman, Senior Director, FS BCM; and Sonia Soni, Global Account Executive for Morgan Stanley. The virtual event welcomed more than 40 participants, including 30 Per Scholas learners, who listened to the panel and went into interactive breakout rooms for further discussion.
Per Scholas is grateful for the time volunteers and panelists have given to our learners and alumni. The advice and insight given greatly impact the learner perspective. Through this interaction, our learners are able to learn more about a corporate environment and gain valuable practice speaking with industry professionals.
