January 20, 2020 marks the 25th anniversary of the MLK Day of Service. This day of service helps empower individuals, strengthen communities, bridge barriers, address social problems, and move us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a “Beloved Community.”
Capgemini Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) A3 and CARES are coming together to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by giving back to our communities. In partnership with Junior Achievement (JA), Capgemini will welcome students to our offices for a day of learning and job shadowing. Eight Capgemini offices across the United States will participate.
JA is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to giving young people the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan for their futures, and make smart academic and economic choices. JA’s mission aligns with Capgemini’s digital-inclusion mission to leverage our digital and technical skills to help bridge the divide between technology and society.
The students visiting our offices will learn more about Capgemini, how we use technology to help our clients solve problems, hear directly from employees about their career journeys, and participate in an interactive digital-learning activity.
Without our ERGs, the coordination of these events would not be possible. It is our honor to make time to give back and engage with our community while recognizing the legacy of Dr. King.
