Looking Back On Our 2021 STEM Summer Diversity Programs
Goldman Sachs is proud to be a corporate sponsor of three high school technology programs as part of our Diversity STEM Summer Programs: All Star Code, Girls Who Code, and Kode With Klossy.
Girls Who Code
Kode With Klossy
For the first time this summer, WE partnered with Kode With Klossy (KWK), the nonprofit founded by supermodel and entrepreneur Karlie Kloss, to sponsor 60 scholars, four instructors and six instructor assistants over a two-week web development curriculum. The virtual program ran from July 26 to August 6. Laura Takacs, global head of Human Capital Management Engineering and co-head of the Americas WE network, kicked off the program. She provided the students with an introduction to the firm, shared how impactful Engineering is to the firm’s functions and highlighted her career trajectory. On the third day of the program Lisa Opoku, chief operating officer of Engineering, joined the KWK Speaker Series for a TechSetters episode. Lisa was joined by Karlie Kloss and more than 500 young women who learned about Lisa’s path to becoming chief operating officer of Engineering and her advice for navigating a career in the technology industry. Karlie Kloss also joined co-CIOs George Lee and Marco Argenti, alongside Liz Byrnes at the mentor drop-in sessions on Thursday, August 5. On the last day of the program, students presented their final projects focused on global issues such as climate change, the refugee crises, and more, to a panel of Goldman Sachs engineers.
