LA intern got lucky this summer at ZS

Posted by ZS on Aug 28, 2017 3:00:00 PM

What makes casino games even more exciting? Knowing all proceeds go to supporting a foundation that rescues companion animals and prepares them for new opportunities. That’s what.

Regardless of how busy everyone gets with their project work, the ZS team makes time to do the right thing for local nonprofit organizations through ZS Cares, our global corporate social responsibility program. This past week, the Los Angeles ZS office held its second annual charity casino night. Throughout the event, ZSers were able to purchase raffle tickets to win donated items. All proceeds were given to the Lange Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to saving impounded animals. The LA office raised over $3,000 and enjoyed an evening of game-playing.

Princeton ZSers empower young women to stick with STEM at #LEADLIKEAGIRL

Posted by ZS on Apr 14, 2017 4:00:00 PM

ZSers from our Princeton office proudly sponsored and participated in Stuart Country Day School’s #LEADLIKEAGIRL conference, an event that brought more than 900 young women grades K-12, mentors, parents and teachers together to empower the next generation of female “risk-takers and changemakers”.

The conference’s mission—to support young women studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics—was near and dear to that of ZS’s own Women’s Leadership Initiative (WLI). ZS’s analytics-based approach means we recruit heavily from the STEM fields—where females have been historically underrepresented—so we strive to empower women who pursue them.
