Four students from Sacred Heart Greenwich enjoyed a unique opportunity to visit Google's New York headquarters. Following an informative tour, the students engaged in a panel discussion with six women in leadership positions across the company and its product teams. These panelists, each representing different career stages, provided valuable insights into the diverse opportunities available within Google.
During the discussion, panelists shared guidance with the students, which included the importance of keeping an open mind when receiving feedback, the value of effective communication, and the vital role empathy plays in understanding consumer behavior, particularly from a research perspective.
Ana Nystedt, Upper School Computer Science Faculty, organized the Google visit as one of the prizes awarded to students who participated in Computer Science Week challenges. “Our students did a great job asking questions to Google employees in a formal and informal setting. We were impressed and grateful by the level of attention and generous time we received from Google employees.”
