HOUSTON, TX / ACCESSWIRE / June 2, 2023 / The National Diversity Council (NDC) announces its 2023 summer cohort of the NDC Emerging Leaders Internship Program, which bridges qualified diverse college students with valuable internships at major organizations that value diversity, equity and inclusion.

In this 10-12 week paid internship program, the NDC partners with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs) to provide college students with an opportunity to work on major projects and showcase their talents to top employers. The NDC looks for students who are ready to take on impactful and challenging projects and gain exposure to various best practices. The NDC partners with companies such as Arkansas Children's Hospital, Aston Carter, BayCare, CenterPoint Energy, Comcast, Honda, Mercedes Benz USA, and UPMC to bring this internship to fruition.

The NDC Emerging Leaders Internship Program offers an exclusive cohort experience centering around leadership. Interns work with industry-leading professionals and obtain exposure to executive and peer networking, mentorship, career development, team collaboration, and philanthropic opportunities for their future careers. As part of the program, students interact with one another as fellow interns who are in this unique journey together.

"Our interns leave this program with the knowledge and experience of working in a team-oriented environment, delivering innovative results and solutions that ultimately impact the bottom line," said Cynthia Rocha, Manager of Education and Internships at the NDC.
