Girls Who Code Alumni Participate in U.S. Bank Summer Internship

U.S. Bank ranked No. 11 on the Fair360, formerly DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2023.


Three alumni of Girls Who Code (GWC) are participating in the U.S. Bank summer internship program. The company is going on its sixth year of supporting GWC, which provides coding instruction and experience to thousands of girls annually.

GWC teach young women and nonbinary high school students how to use multiple computer languages over a seven-week immersion program. The initiative also aims to encourage young women and nonbinary individuals to develop a passion for coding or technology.

Kelsey Kim, Tamara Kunter and Israa Mohammed are three alumni of GWC who participated in U.S. Bank’s summer internship program.

“We sponsored GWC’s Hiring Summit, Technical Interview Prep program and overall Pipeline programming, which supports female and nonbinary students at all points from third grade through college, and beyond,” said Jason Teal, program manager for Tech Services at U.S. Bank. “Through our support in these programs, we participated in resume review events, speed networking events, and more. Each gave an opportunity for participants to get feedback on their resumes and/or practice interviewing. I am so excited that we were able to offer internships to GWC alumni and thrilled that we had Kelsey, Tamara and Israa here with us this summer.”

GWC has served 580,000 young women and nonbinary students over its 10-year history.
