At the end of 2018, Cambia Health Solutions’ Data & Technology Solutions team (DTS) made an ongoing commitment to Girls, Inc. that as long as we had a participating board member, Cambia would donate laptops to the graduates of the Eureka! STEM Program every year. Lori Delone, division chief information officer of health plans at Cambia, has served on the board since 2017.
Eureka! is a five-year program for 8th-12th graders designed to support and motivate underserved young people to work toward educational and career goals, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This month, nine girls will receive a new MacBook inside their graduation “goodie bag,” compliments of Cambia. We have now donated laptops to every graduating class since the beginning of Eureka!
In addition to outfitting the graduates with laptops, DTS donated ten additional laptops to support the organization’s administrative staff. The gifted laptops will help alleviate the challenges staff have experienced since moving to remote work during the pandemic. Along with donating laptops, Cambia also supports the Eureka! summer internship program. Each summer, we invite two girls from the program to collaborate on a special project within DTS.
Cambia’s technology team is committed to recruiting and developing diverse talent to better meet the needs of our customers. We appreciate our partnership with the Eureka! Program because it gives us the opportunity to support young women in STEM materially through our laptop donations and experientially through the summer internship program. At Cambia, we are committed to supporting and engaging the next generation of tech leaders.
