Billigence Europe team is happy to participate at the three months Digital Academy organized by Czechitas who aim “To get IT to girls and girls to IT”.
During that time we lectured a whole day session dedicated to visualisations in Tableau and at the end of the course offered an internship and a mentor to help the girls with their final thesis and practice with real data.
But how to find the right mentor and internship? All companies which participated at the Digital Academy present to girls their projects, internship opportunities and mentors. Then individual face to face Speed Dating follows. Up to 10-15 minutes for one company and then move to another one. At the end girls demonstrate their preferences at the white board using colorful stickers.
We are glad that in spite of being from Prague, not Brno, we made a good impression to girls and we attractive for them :-) We are looking forward to seeing four of them in our office next week.
