Meet Our 2019 Summer Interns!
Happy National Intern Day! We are so lucky to have a group of talented interns helping us at DivInc this summer. We are so impressed with the incredible work they’re doing and insights they’re building.
In honor of National Intern Day, we wanted to take a moment to introduce them. Our student interns span a wide range of majors and education stages, but all share a passion for diversity and inclusion, and changing the future for the better!
