The goal for Modern Muse is both simple and lofty: be an inspirational force for the next generation of businesswomen. An online hub for career inspiration and connections, it shows every girl, parent, and teacher the diversity of STEM careers and introduces them to real-life role models.
In 2016, Modern Muse launched a social app running in the cloud to foster that connection. Modern Muse selected Microsoft Azure for its cloud platform, engaging Avanade to assess the technical aspects of the site, including authentication, privacy, and accessibility requirements.
“It has been a seamless and rewarding experience working with Avanade. Their support and commitment to inspiring girls globally, has been pivotal in helping us develop the platform and take Modern Muse to a world- wide audience.”
The new social app allows professional women to create public profiles that include their education and career history. There is also space to post pictures and comments from their daily lives as well field questions from girls.
The Modern Muse program encourages girls to peruse the site and learn about the women who are already doing the jobs they may want to pursue.
Thanks to this new social app, built with the help of Avanade and leveraging the Azure cloud, Modern Muse is expanding its reach to hundreds of girls worldwide.
