In January, 177 CUNY women interested in technology careers took part in Winternships at 46 companies. A Winternship is a two- or three-week mini-internship during the winter academic break for freshmen and sophomore CUNY women.

Winternships give these young women an immersive experience in different tech businesses/industries as well as a resume credential that will make them more competitive when applying for a summer tech internship.

Winterns and company sponsors were so excited about the experience they wrote about it. Here are a few of the first-hand experiences:
