September 12, 2018 - Colorado Springs, Colo.
Cherwell Software, LLC, (“Cherwell”) a global leader in service management, announced a new partnership with CodePath.org, a non-profit organization that creates courses that fit seamlessly into the existing curriculum of students in Computer Science (CS) programs across the country. As part of the collaboration, Cherwell will support underrepresented computer science students and will welcome Codepath.org interns to its engineering team in 2019.
Cherwell will match scholarship donations generated by a fundraiser at its annual Cherwell Global Conference (Sept. 18-20, 2018) and will offer internship opportunities on its engineering team in 2019 for candidates identified by CodePath.org.
“Directly contributing to the education, work experience and ultimate success of future engineers is truly rewarding and serves to enhance our industry,” Cherwell CEO Sam Gilliland said. “We are proud to help nurture a diverse pipeline of students that is more reflective of the customers we serve and the world around us. I look forward to welcoming these students.”
CodePath.org partners with colleges and major tech companies to prepare CS students for careers in technology. CodePath.org supplements university CS programs with industry-trusted curriculum, personalized student support, career preparation and jobs placement to help boost enrollment of underrepresented groups in computer science programs and lower the attrition rate of those groups. CodePath.org runs programming courses at more than 20 universities and has taught more than 1,700 students in the past three years.
“It is awesome to see industry leaders like Cherwell step up and contribute to such a vital initiative,” CodePath.org CEO Michael Ellison said. “The challenges that come with enterprise software is unlike building consumer applications or photo sharing social networks. We recognize Cherwell’s commitment to a truly global software solution and its support of international teams and know that the students we place will not only be challenged but have a great support system.”
