We are very excited to announce the launch of our fifth program in the San Francisco Bay Area, which will include return to work opportunities with 15 partner companies. We are pleased to welcome new partners GitHub, Nutanix, OSIsoft, Quizlet, Uber, Walmart, and Workday and applaud the continued commitment to diversity and inclusion from our returning partners Carta, Cloudera, Cloudflare, LendingClub, Medallia, Sage Intacct, Stripe and Volta. 

As a part of the program, our partners are offering paid return to work internships that will begin in August and September of 2018. The Path Forward program is open to mid-career professionals who have at least 5 years of professional experience and are looking to return to work after taking a career pause of at least two years for caregiving. These opportunities will span a wide range of functions including hardware engineering, software engineering, marketing, product management, professional services, and HR.

About Path Forward

We are extremely pleased that our Return to Work program is helping candidates restart their careers across markets, across industries and across functions with companies large and small who all share one thing — a commitment to creating more diverse and thriving workplace.  We ran our first program in San Francisco in the fall of 2016 with partners Zendesk, Demandbase, Cloudflare and Coursera and have since run five consecutive programs across four markets including San Francisco, New York, Colorado and Los Angeles. In all, we’ve worked more than 35 companies — including Apple, Intuit, Medallia, Cloudflare, Sage Intacct, PayPal and Volta Charging in San Francisco; NBC Universal, Campbell’s Soup and Verisk Analytics in New York; Oracle Data Cloud, TeleTech and Return Path in Colorado; and Verizon Digital Media Services and Boingo Wireless in Los Angeles — to create opportunities for caregivers to restart their careers. This fall, we are pleased to expand into retail with the addition of Walmart, who will be offering three-month mid-career internships in its software engineering and product management teams in San Bruno and Sunnyvale.

Nearly 180 people (predominantly women) have completed Path Forward internships and 80% of those were offered ongoing employment at the company where they interned. In the words of Zendesk’s Wendy Padua, “Doing a returnship at a company working with Path Forward was undeniably fantastic. It was terrific to be surrounded by this group of women who all really understood the challenges and excitement we were going through, especially since there was no one else on my team who could share that experience.” You can read about Wendy and many other graduates in our Participant Spotlights.
