With: AT&T Aspire International Champion Ruth Agyei, Specialist, Business Administration
Q: What early influences motivated you to become involved with Aspire?
A: My first job was as a teacher. I think most teachers have a passion for giving back. I am no exception. Clearly, that passion influenced my decision to take on the role of AT&T Aspire Mentoring Academy in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia (EMEA) Regional Champion.
September 15 to October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month. This is a good opportunity to reflect on the progress Latinas have made in the workplace. Compared to previous generations, today’s Latinas tend to be more educated, empowered, independent and comfortable putting themselves at the center of life decisions.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the workplace, where Latinas are making extraordinary advancements.

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.
