How can a company make its internship program more diverse? Here’s how!

A growing number of companies nowadays are placing a high value on promoting employee diversity and inclusion, but a recent survey by InternMatch have found that not all of these companies actually succeed in making their internship programs as diverse as they desire them to be.

For hiring managers who are looking for ways on how to make their intership programs more diverse and inclusive, here are some tips that may help:

1. Track the number of diverse interns your company hires every year, as well as the sources for these hires.

2. Network with groups and organizations with a national reach to help you find talented minorities.

3. Invest time and resources in mentoring young students.

4. Communicate your company’s diversity initiatives and support them with concrete programs and visible actions.

5. Look beyond traditional hiring strategies to engage potential hires.
