DALLAS, May 31, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- o9 Solutions, provider of the Premier AI-Platform for Integrated Planning and Digital Operations, is pleased to announce a donation of $5,000 to Girls Who Code, a nonprofit organization which aims to support and increase the number of women in computer science. This donation has been made on behalf of the "Class of 2018 Gartner Supply Chain Executive Summit."
In accordance with their stated mission of being the "Most Valuable to Clients," o9 created a social game called, "10x Connect." At this year's Gartner Supply Chain Executive Summit, the World's Most Important Gathering of Supply Chain Leaders, o9 presented this game to the attendees as a unique networking opportunity. The game aimed at reducing social friction within the summit, giving attendees an easier platform to begin networking, thus enhancing their overall conference experience.
As part of the game, o9 offered participants an opportunity to vote on three different charities, of which Girls Who Code was overwhelmingly chosen as the beneficiary of o9's donation. In an amazing show of solidarity, over 500 people joined the game, including senior supply chain executives from Fortune 500 companies, partners, media personalities, analysts, and even other vendors.
"We're delighted to bring everyone together at this conference and see their unified support for Girls Who Code," said Chakri Gottemukkala, Co-Founder and CEO o9 Solutions. "This charity is directly aligned with our internal commitment to reduce the gender gap in technology."
On May 29, o9 Solutions submitted their online donation to Girls Who Code and looks forward to future partnerships with non-profit organizations like Girl Who Code.
