Red Hat Research is always open to supporting innovative ideas and initiatives that make a difference to students and faculty. This summer, we sponsored the Leadership Academy, a program launched by the Institute of Diversity Sciences (IDS) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, led by equity and inclusion expert Nilanjana Buju Dasgupta.
The Leadership Academy is a free, six-week online accelerator program, designed to help advance undergraduate women and underrepresented minority students who are interested in careers in technology, engineering, and science. In this program, students got a chance to learn about the unspoken culture of workplaces, develop the skills needed to succeed in their early career, and network with professionals in industry.
To hear more about the leadership academy’s vision for the future,watch this video featuring program mentors and partners, including our own Denise Dumas, Red Hat’s vice president of Engineering Diversity.
