Building a Diverse Pipeline
FHLB Dallas provides undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain valuable work experience through its long-running internship program private, faith-based, historically Black college in Dallas, Texas, offering internship opportunities to students to offset the cost of their college tuition and housing. In 2020, we increased our focus to recruit interns from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) by including associated goals in our incentive compensation programs. In 2022, we expanded our HBCU recruitment to include two additional HBCUs. For 2023, we have set an ESG goal to extend 60 percent of our summer internship program offers to minority and women students.
“My intern experience at FHLB Dallas has been a unique one and I appreciate the diverse staff because it makes me feel truly welcome. FHLB Dallas acknowledges, accepts, educates and includes everyone when it comes to learning about different cultures.”
