Mercy Corps to Offer Internship for HBCU Grads

One of the leading humanitarian relief organizations focused on addressing diversity is partnering with the nation’s historically Black colleges and universities to recruit more African Americans.

Mercy Corps, a Portland, Oregon-based organization, said the recent social justice movement placed a spotlight on the disparity, spurring it to offer a paid internship program for recent Black college graduates as a way to get a job with the organization, a local ABC News affiliate reported.

“This is a real opportunity for us to address that issue head-on, and it really matters that we make a concerted effort to look to partners like our historically black colleges and universities in the U.S. to help us diversify our talent,” Mercy Corps senior advisor Swathi Massar said in a statement.

The intern program is expected to start this fall.
