Inspiring the next generation of young Black women to pursue a career in tech is a shared responsibility across academia, industry, and government as evident by the surge of efforts across the country. Opportunities that aid in demystifying these types of careers have demonstrated they have a role to play among historically underrepresented groups.
The Resident Scholar Program (RSP), which began at Procter & Gamble in 2004, is one such opportunity. RSP is an interactive job shadowing experience for minority high school students.
The TCGi Foundation works with partner companies to design a job shadowing experience unique to your company’s business. Through a hands-on experience, young Black women are empowered to envision the possibilities of a rewarding career in tech while equipping themselves with the knowledge of how to get there.
Stay tuned for the launch of our 2023 RSP applications for both students and businesses. For inquiries, send us an email and one of our team members will get back to you shortly.
