On Monday, Bixel Exchange partnered with Headspace to host a web development lunch-and-learn at their campus in Santa Monica. The event featured an employer panel, and was followed by a Q&A with students in our L.A. Tech Talent Pipeline program. After the panel, there was a networking session in which students had the opportunity to meet the larger Headspace staff.

Our team also had the opportunity to check in on two of our students currently interning with Headspace on the Android development and business development teams.
