In the Netherlands, AT&T works with Junior Achievement to mentor local students. During the 2015-2016 schoolyear, our employees impacted 229 students!
To wrap up the year and give these students business experience in a fun setting, we organized the first AT&T Challenge. At our office in The Hague, 5 student teams were paired with an AT&T employee mentor to imagine a business and prepare a growth plan in 1.5 hours. They then gave a 3-minute pitch to our panel of judges to compete for a fictitious €100000 capital investment.
Tickets are hard to come by for the Broadway show “Hamilton,” which won the Tony Award for Best New Musical Sunday night. But that hasn’t stopped it from becoming a sensation across the country, with many people listening to its soundtrack on repeat. Much of its popularity comes from the innovative way it blends American history with a hip-hop-meets-show-tunes soundtrack. (It’s not every day you hear cabinet meetings imagined as rap battles.) Yet part of what makes the story so compelling is its real-life hero, Alexander Hamilton, who was talented and flawed in equal parts.
Booz Allen Hamilton is proud to participate in and sponsor the 2016 FIRST® Championship, where science, technology, and engineering merge with the thrill of competitive sports! Beginning today at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, MO, students from around the world will compete at FIRST Championship after several months of preparation and local competition.
On March 22, members of the Women of FOX Sports group volunteered at Children's Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), a nonprofit hospital providing care to more than 107,000 children each year. The event came as part of CHLA's annual #MakeMarchMatter campaign, through which the hospital aims to raise $1 million in support of its programs and services. FOX Sports colleagues received a tour of the hospital and spent time with the patients by serving food and hosting arts & crafts activities.
A recent survey of 1,000 millennials by Zeno Group found that while millennial women highly value mentorship, only 60 percent of them have mentors; and those who had them were more likely to believe they were on track to achieve their professional goals.
AT&T has long been a City Year champion, investing both in the national organization, as well as the community of Little Rock, Arkansas. As a team sponsor for four years, they have had an impact on many students, including this year’s senior class valedictorian, Hillary.
Earlier this month we announced that we reached an exciting milestone: AT&T employees have provided 1 million hours of mentoring to more than 160,000 students who need it the most through our Aspire Mentoring Academy.
Atlas Copco Group mainly targets to create a common understanding of how to attract, recruit, develop and retain female employees, and of the vital importance of diversity in management.
Recognizing the need to develop more female managers, the first high-level female mentorship program -Pleiades- was launched. Diversity in top management was the motivation behind creation of the Female Mentorship Program, a program that pairs high-potential women with male mentors in general manager positions, to help the mentees prepare for such positions.
