g4g@work with Cisco in Brussels!

1 April 2015
A new concept for all to follow...
FUN skill-building
at the company
 
What can we do to encourage more girls to enter the world of Information and Communication Technology? Girls should be able to experience the IT world first hand, in an interactive work environment – to be able to see, touch, hear and be inspired by the possibilities their future holds – and it all begins at an early age.
On April 1st, 34 greenlight girls aged 10-15 joined us in pioneering an amazing initiative we’re calling “g4g@work”. With the leadership of Aurelia Takacs, our Cisco Global Point of Contact and ~25 awesome Cisco employees, an afternoon of skill-building had begun.
At the end of the day, upon completion, the girls became “Cisco Certified Future Engineers” as the General Manager of Cisco Belux, Pol Vanbiervliet, personally handed out certificates to each girl! Continue reading our BLOG here...

Our 2nd annual fun-filled STEM day in Italy!

As a special surprise, astronaut Andrea Boyd gave a special message to the children and they had the chance to see a video of Samantha Cristoforetti in the space station - ending with the chance to try some real space ice cream!! Auguri ragazzi di Sondrio et... arrivederci!! See you again soon! Flip through THE ALBUM here...
