Credit Suisse Collaborates with Girls Who Code to Jump-start Careers in Technology through Summer Immersion Program

Credit Suisse announced today that it has teamed up with Girls Who Code, an international nonprofit working to close the gender gap in technology, as a corporate partner for its signature Summer Immersion Program. This is the third consecutive year that Credit Suisse has partnered with the organization.


Credit Suisse will host a two-week program where students in high school will have an opportunity to build the technical skills and professional network to make an impact and prepare for a successful future career in technology.


Marinela Tudoran, Head of Investment Bank Technology at Credit Suisse, said "We are excited for this opportunity to invest in the next great technological minds in the financial services industry. At Credit Suisse, we are passionate about creating a culture of empowered engineering. This program aims to open doors for students by providing a network of knowledgeable mentors in computer science and engineering across the bank. Together, we will work to lay the foundation to continue to diversify the pipeline of technologists working on Wall Street."


Credit Suisse's 2022 Summer Immersion Program runs from August 1 through August 12. The bank will host approximately 60 students during the duration of the program and intends to provide an immersive educational experience and invaluable networking opportunities for participants. Credit Suisse will organize a series of mentoring sessions focused on cyber and information security awareness, building a personal brand, resume writing, and career journeys in technology. The students will also hear speakers ranging from the bank's senior leaders to a panel of the bank’s Technical Analysts.
