IBIT Small Group Meeting with Walmart Event
In September 2016, I was fortunate to attend a small group lunch with Ban Hasan, the Chief Culture, Diversity and Inclusion Officer and the former Senior Vice President of Strategic Services at Walmart, and several other Walmart executives. This took place after an AIS Speaker Series meeting where we had the opportunity to hear Mr. Hasan talk about his journey to Walmart and experiences with IT. Hearing his story, having graduated from Temple himself, was very inspiring to me. In the small group meeting, we were able to talk about the internship opportunities Walmart offers and why the company would be a good fit for us. Having a background in fashion, retail being a huge part of that industry, I am particularly interested in going into retail data analytics. Walmart has been a leader in this field since it’s inception and I would love the opportunity to work with them and become more knowledgeable on this segment of the industry.
