Internship Programs Can Support Diversity
A leading corporate internship program has also been described as a leader in promoting diversity.
(NAPSI)—A growing number of companies believe they can benefit from efforts to increase the diversity of their management team. One way corporations can recruit with an eye toward more diversity is by partnering with intern programs designed to aid in this effort.
For example, one such program is described as the nation’s top provider of professional leadership training and corporate internships for underserved students in the U.S., Canada and Mexico and has been described as a leader in promoting diversity and inclusion for corporate America for more than 40 years.
Called INROADS, it has trained and coached over 150,000 students and professionals and served more than 2,000 corporate partners. Plus, a Procter & Gamble retention study showed that its graduates remain on average two to three years longer than those hired via other internal or partner programs.
In DiversityInc.’s 2013 list of the “Top 50 Companies for Diversity,” eight of the top 10 companies are INROADS partners.
