Girls Who Code Club Members Attend Conference

Ten Milton students participated in the Harvard WECode virtual conference in October. CAROLINE WILSON ’21 and DINA-SARA CUSTO ’22 served as Milton’s student ambassadors and were two of the 21 (out of 80) student ambassadors who received WECode Leadership Awards. Prior to the event, they connected virtually with the Harvard WECode board, and other ambassadors from around the world to spread information and help organize the conference.

“We had the opportunity to listen to discussions surrounding STEM majors, internships, college admissions, college life, and other opportunities for women in technology,” says Wilson. “Even after the conference, we continued to connect with women in tech from the conference via channels on the platform Slack.”

Wilson says that Jen Easterly, managing director for Morgan Stanley, and Elena Glassman, assistant professor of computer science at Harvard University, “inspired our students to be fearless leaders not only in their computer science classes but also in their future paths.”

A GENERATION LOOKS AHEAD

The past year has brought about difficult new realities. For those entering adulthood—dubbed Generation Z—a return to “normal” will involve fundamental change. In this issue, the Milton community looks toward the future and discusses how we will work, learn, laugh, cry, and live together in the decades ahead.
