McLean, VA, January 4, 2022 - Easy Dynamics Corporation is proud to be one of the first participating corporate partners in Break Through Tech DC's Sprinternship™ program. Easy Dynamics and Break Through Tech join forces in a shared effort to accelerate gender equality in the technology industry by propelling more women into technology careers through corporate guidance and mentorship.
Under the Sprinternship™ program, five "Sprinterns" (short-term interns) from the University of Maryland will be joining Easy Dynamics for a paid, three-week mini-internship program. "Sprinterns" will engage in dynamic, hands-on training opportunities, complete a real-world project, and benefit from personalized career coaching sessions taught and supervised by the company's subject matter experts and leadership.
"It's been a personal mission of mine to propel more young women of diverse backgrounds into the tech industry," said CEO of Easy Dynamics, Poupak Afshar. "Our industry is growing, but women remain an underrepresented group in the technology workforce. Easy Dynamics is committed to building a diverse talent pipeline and inspiring more women to enter the industry. We look forward to providing our Sprinterns with a memorable experience that will set them up for a successful path in tech."
"We are thrilled for our students who will have the opportunity to work with Easy Dynamics this January during the launch of our Sprinternship program in DC," said Donna White, Break Through Tech DC Director. "Getting that real-world tech industry experience is a huge first step for our students. It's time to build a more inclusive tech ecosystem, and we believe that the Sprinternship program has the potential to do just that."
