Lella and I had an amazing year of fun with our 2021 StudentX show! We hope you enjoyed the content, learnings, and speakers as much as we did when we decided to put StudentX together and kept it going throughout the year. This year was all about delivering meaningful and actionable content that has been all about the student…for students, with students, and by students.

All our shows served as a series of intergenerational dialogues between practitioners and seasoned thought leaders paired with students from all over the world.

Did you know we had 20 episodes, 50 guest speakers, 3 special events, collaborated with 15 organizations, and welcomed 3,500 members to the IBM Z Global Student Hub? If you are not yet a member, here’s your chance to register and ensure you do not miss all the fun planned for 2022.
