Find Your Future

Look Around

Do you see a lot of faces like yours represented at the leadership level in Portland-area companies?

Portland companies can do a better job of reflecting the rich diversity of our community by actively building a more inclusive and representative workforce, and ELI is here to help. We believe the best way to build a more resilient, productive, and empathetic workforce is through diversity.

Our internship program is looking for talented students of color who want to help bring some diversity to Portland's leadership landscape. Sound like someone you know?

Who We’re Looking For

Underrepresented college students, graduate students, and those who’ve graduated within the last year. You need to have completed at least one year of college coursework by summer 2020.
