Our SGI Reunion is this Monday, 9/22, in Palo Alto! Please RSVP.

18 09 2014

Hello Everyone,

For those of you who know the story of the KIT List, it started as my personal “Keep in Touch” (the meaning of the KIT name!) email list of my friends at Silicon Graphics. It grew simply by word-of-mouth to what I jokingly call 71,000 of my closest friends!

But for those of you who are present and last SGI employees or consultants (like me!), I wanted to make sure you knew about this year’s SGI reunion I’m organizing.

20140918-112834.jpg
Here are the details:

SGI Reunion
Monday, Sept. 22
The Patio
412 Emerson, Palo Alto
5:30 – 9:00

Please RSVP via the Evite at:
http://www.evite.com/event/020CXOF6IQI7M4WTSEPEGRT2ZVCOAU

It’s no-host, so it’s free to attend and you just buy your own drinks and food — or you can be a hero and buy some friends a drink!

We’ll be meeting on the back patio…and the weather is promising to be warm and balmy that evening.

Please pass the word to other SGIers so we don’t miss anyone!

I’m sorry, but this is for SGI folks only, though I will organize a KIT List networking event at another time. I’m just rushing to get this in while the weather is good!

Take care, everyone,

Sue





Can You Help Identify Internships for Worthy Teens?

3 09 2014

Hello Everyone,

I’d like to enlist your help to connect underserved high school students to internship opportunities in your company — or other companies in which you have friends.

I recently became aware of Genesys Works, a unique non-profit that marries workforce development with college prep.

The remarkable thing is that this program has been quite successful getting underserved teens onto a college and career track — while providing part-time tech-savvy resources for local companies.

They transform underserved high schoolers into young professionals through technical training and afterschool internships during their senior year.

This program differs significantly from traditional high school internships, as the training enables these students to do real work in backoffice operations, rather than just fetch coffee or copies. And since it’s a yearlong engagement (not a quick summer job) both the company and the student gain deeper rewards overall.

Here’s the best part: over 12 years of operation, 96% of their students go on to college after graduating high school
– an option most had not even considered possible prior to the program.

Their partners include many Bay Area leaders such as PG&E, Accenture, McKesson, and Salesforce. They’ve also received some nice media coverage lately from ABC7 News and the SF Business Times.

They still looking for a few more positions this Fall for deserving students, so I’m hoping you can help.

If you think your company could benefit from this double bottom line approach, please contact their executive director (and longtime KITlist member!) Peter Katz at pkatz@genesysworks.org​

You can like Genesys Works – Bay Area on Facebook: www.facebook.com/genesysworksbayarea

Or check out their website:
www.genesysworks.org/bayarea

Let’s use the power of friends helping friends to create internship opportunities for these worthy teens — and give them a real shot at college and a promising future!

Thanks so much,

Sue
