A Culture of Diversity and Inclusion

Our Internship Program was awarded the DEI Champion Award in 2023 by WayUp


Diversity is what makes us unique as an organization, but inclusion is what sparks our innovation and creativity. Building and retaining a diverse workforce starts with our recruiting efforts, reinforced through our leadership. We leverage collaborations through strategic diverse partners, inclusive professional organizations, Historically Black Universities, inclusive campus affinity groups and community outreach partners. Our vision and mission are to provide all employees an opportunity to advance their competencies through continuous learning while building a sense of comradery, mentorship, and increased awareness throughout the organization, making WWT a Great Place to Work for All.


Benefits and Perks

Through recruitment, workforce inclusion and education we provide our employees with the needed resources for success and strive to maintain our Great Place to Work® atmosphere by always putting our employees first. Our commitment to developing our students begins with an assigned manager AND mentor to be sure all interns have the proper internal resources and support while with us. Time spent at WWT as an intern also means exposure to our encouraging executive leadership through various events and presentations.

The WWT Internship program offers many unique experiences to our interns, all of which are specifically designed to foster the professional growth of our students and contribute to the advancement of their education.

As an intern, you will not only have the benefit of gaining real-world job experience, but you'll also enjoy benefits and perks similar to our full-time employees.

Each summer, our leadership teams come together to decide on a Capstone Project relevant to WWT's business needs for the interns to work on throughout their program. Groups of 8-10 interns from different departments will work together to solve the business problem and present their outcomes to leadership and WWT team members at the end of the summer. This project serves as a means for students to collaborate, apply skills and deep dive into WWT's business solutions. The ideas are used, implemented and contribute to the overall go to market strategy.

And YES, a winning group is chosen for the most captivating project!

Hear from our 2023 Interns

"During my time as an intern at World Wide Technology, I had the privilege to experience a thriving and inclusive company culture that many talked about. From day one, I felt like part of a big family, where everybody was extremely supportive. Along with this, I was fortunate to receive exceptional mentorship, providing me with guidance and opportunities to contribute to meaningful projects."
