Girls Day in Zürich

7. June 2013 Girls Group from ZHAW at Cisco Zurich Office

A Girls Group from ZHAW visited the office in Zurich to learn about Cisco as a company, the technologies and learn from first hand testimony how it is to work in the IT fields as a woman.

The program included a session about how to build a video end point with Markus Bina, a tour through the Cisco office, a live TelePresence Session with Munich and Oslo (English practice lesson included), a snack after all this work and experimenting time in the Green Room where the girls could record their own video message from their class mates, teacher or friends.

As it is shown on the photos the girls did enjoy playing with technology and showed real professionalism speaking freely in the recordings. The shared their views on the experiences of the day and conducted an interview Noemi Thum and Meg Rainbow about learning in school and how to decide your future profession.

The Budget from the ITU International Girls Day was well used for this occasion. A great day indeed!

Thanks a lot to to Andreas Moser for his initiative and leadership in regard to getting new talent on board to join the IT world and everybody who helped making this possible.
