Golden Spiral Builds Scholarship Fund for Women in Technology Tennessee

Nashville needs more tech talent. Nashville also needs more women in technology. That’s why Golden Spiral donated $5,000 in scholarships to Women in Technology of Tennessee (WiTT) in an effort to support our local tech community, especially when it comes to workforce development.

This is the second year we’ve contributed to the scholarship fund. The donation is part of WiTT’s contribution to seven scholarships for Nashville Software School students.

WiTT works hard to create new possibilities for women to succeed in technology and science careers.

Nashville Software School is a community-funded nonprofit that provides intensive training and project-based learning programs in software development.

Golden Spiral’s donation to WiTT is part of a $19,000 fund with contributions from WiTT and other NSS sponsors. It helps students cover schooling costs and puts them on a solid path towards development of careers in technology. The seven Opportunity Tuition students — who received partial scholarships upon their program acceptance — receive credit toward their remaining tuition balances. Additionally, some funds will go toward laptop costs for the students. Scholarship recipients include:

  • Leah Gwin (Hoefling)
  • Mehret Kulala
  • Fevan Mulugeta
  • Ripal Patel
  • Jessica Rodgers
  • Emily Venturino
  • April Watson

We spend a lot of time translating our client’s complex tech-driven offerings into market-driven solutions that speak to real buyer’s needs. But the WiTT scholarships are something that’s easy to understand. The more we build out our tech workforce, the more Nashville and the Middle Tennessee region can grow as a center for technology companies.

Congratulations to this year’s winners, and can’t wait to see what the future holds for each of the recipients.
