NDC Emerging Leaders Program

In agreement with the NDC’s mission to be both a resource and an advocate for the value of diversity and inclusion, our goals include (1) ensure that our interns are exposed to an elite internship (2) with access and exposure to true meaningful business projects, and (3) enhance and develop these abilities through executive and peer networking opportunities, mentorship, career development, team project experiences, philanthropic activities and an opportunity for future careers. Our partnering companies have helped us reach these goals by offering our underrepresented students high quality internship opportunities that will comprise hands-on mentorship around navigating the corporate realm, learning effective communication skills, and enhancing professional development overall.
