If you missed the information session on Monday, September 24th, Elspeth Boynton sent along contact for Midd Alumna Meghan Blumstein ’11:

Our thanks to Meghan Blumstein ’11, who was the connection to bring diiVE to Middlebury. She writes, I recently got involved with an organization called diiVe (godiive.com), which runs month-long data science boot camps for students in Cape Town, then pairs those students with socially conscious organizations to do month-long internships. I cannot say enough positive things about the all-female owned and operated organization and their amazing mission to not only teach students hard coding and analysis skills, but also to empower them to use those skills for social good and make real change in the world.”

In an increasingly interconnected world, leading companies are progressively turning to those candidates that have digital experience and global perspective.
