DEI Intern

The NAIOP Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion College Internship Program is a resource for current college students, NAIOP student members, and students who have been placed in a summer internship with NAIOP-member CRE companies. This program is a platform for interns of diverse ethnicities, genders, abilities, and sexual orientations to interact more closely with NAIOP, connect with peers, and experience the breadth of the CRE industry. By providing an additional support resource for NAIOP member companies, we aim to enhance the interns’ summer experiences and bring them together with other college students from diverse backgrounds. The more we can enhance the intern experience, the more likely students are to seek full-time employment in the industry.

During the program, participating students will meet with DEI Committee members to discuss their career goals, learn about job opportunities in CRE, hear from CRE professionals, and develop deeper connections with industry professionals and their peers. Click here to learn more.
