Ericsson partners with GSNETX
The Girls Scouts of Northeast Texas have made a powerful ICT ally! Ericsson and GSNETX are working together to build a diverse STEM leadership pipeline that our whole industry will benefit from.
This is a great opportunity for us to help a wonderful group of enterprising young disruptors to learn the technology skills they will need to make a huge impact on the entire ICT industry!
Advice and guidance
We will be employing our 140 years of ICT industry expertise to provide the Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas with a variety of advisory resources, including:
- Career counseling
- Mentoring for High School girls
- Job shadowing opportunities
- High School Internships and scholarship opportunities
- Volunteers and teachers at GSNETX STEM camp
- STEM camp curriculum guidance
- Enterprise IT guidance
- Ericsson Tech Camp participation
Fiber for STEM Camp
We will also be helping to provide fiber connections for the Girl Scout’s flagship STEM camp – including fiber design, hard wiring, materials and installation!
We’ve already hosted 11 High School Girl Scouts for a Job Shadow Day at Ericsson’s US headquarters in Plano, TX. The girls learned about various positions, such as ITC Operations, Business Analyst, Engineering, Sales, Talent Acquisition, Human Resources, Solutions Architect, Sourcing and Finance. A good time was had by all, and the girls got great exposure to a career that they otherwise may not have even thought about.
We were delighted to be able to send 2 Girl Scout Graduates to the 2017 Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing in Orlando, Florida! Ericsson is a proud sponsor of the Grace Hopper Celebration and a 2017 partner of the Anita Borg Institute.
Focusing on gender diversity in technology
Ericsson is fully committed to persuing gender diversity – our goal is for at least 30% of our workforce to be women by the year 2020. Our partnership with the Girl Scouts of the USA to help develop female STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) leaders is just one part of this commitment.
The Girl Scouts of the USA is one of the leading organizations in providing girls with STEM resources and opportunities. For example, they’ve recently released 23 new STEM focused badges that encourage girls to learn to code, design robots, build racecars and collect data in nature. The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas has taken particular interest by transforming their Camp Whispering Cedars facility into a dedicated STEM center complete with opportunities in robotics, coding, botany, chemistry and more – a space that Ericsson is providing fiber connections for.

A Girl Scouts Experience
“I was recently asked about the defining moments that led me to be where I am today. With little delay, I proudly stated with a smile… the Girl Scouts! So how did my journey with the Girl Scouts become integral to my cultural journey? My experience with the Girls Scout went beyond thin mints, badges, and camp - although these were fun too! I was a Girl Scout through to High School. It was then, and continues to be, about building girls of courage, confidence, and character. I found their character-building rooted in their valuing diversity and championing inclusion. The Girl Scouts afforded me an opportunity to learn about teamwork, cultural food varieties, different countries and religions, leadership, valuing our differences, and healthy competition. Fast forward several years after my amazing Girl Scout cultural journey. When I think of the Girl Scout motto about being prepared, and of course being considerate and caring, courageous, and strong, I see it as a great foundation for a Diversity and Inclusion framework.”

Important notice: fraudulent job offers
It has come to our attention that emails and job adverts have been created and circulated by unknown individuals for the purpose of attempting to defraud candidates.
Potential candidates should be wary of approaches that appear to be offering a job for which they have not applied, especially if personal details or money must be sent in order to proceed with the recruitment. Neither Ericsson nor any commissioned third parties recruit in this manner. Such approaches are almost certainly fraudulent attempts to gain details of identity for illegal use.
Ericsson is taking all necessary steps to investigate this matter further.
