2021 Equity in Missouri Higher Education Summit
October 28, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am
Members of The DeBruce Foundation team team will facilitate a panel called “Using Virtual Internships to Expand Access to Opportunity”, highlighting how virtual internships serve to increase equitable access to internships, connect innovative employers to opportunity-seeking interns, and provide insight on establishing meaningful employer – employee relationships in a virtual work environment. While vShips was initially a response to the circumstances created by the pandemic, internships going forward will include in-person, virtual, AND hybrid experiences. The panel will also discuss how the lessons from the past year can be applied in various ways to advance equitable opportunity in the future of work.
