Best Internships for Diversity

Vault surveyed thousands of current and former interns about their internship programs. Vault’s Best Internships for Diversity represent the programs rated highest for workforce diversity, an inclusive culture, and opportunities for women, minorities, LGBTQ individuals and other underrepresented groups.
Survey Methodology

In order to compile the 2020 Vault Top Internships Rankings, Vault invited more than 400 organizations to participate in our 2019 Internship Survey. We gathered information both from organizations that sponsor internships and from their interns. The internship sponsors provided Vault with descriptions of their programs, as well as details on the number of interns hired, duration of program, locations and departments in which interns are placed, and application requirements. We also asked current and former interns to comment on and rate their internship experiences on a variety of factors, including the application process, compensation and perks, quality of life, meaningfulness of assignments and training, diversity, and full-time employment prospects.

This year, nearly 14,000 current and former interns responded to our survey. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest and 1 being the lowest, respondents were asked to rate their internship experiences in six core areas:

  • Quality of Life (office culture, hours, work-life balance, flexibility)
  • Compensation & Benefits (pay structure, subsidized expenses, office space, perks)
  • Interview Process (application process, requirements, number of interviews)
  • Career Development (including four separate ratings for training and mentoring, quality of assignments, real-life experience, networking opportunities)
  • Full-time Employment Prospects (opportunity to obtain a full-time job with this organization)
  • Diversity (including four separate ratings for diversity with respect to women, minorities, LGBT individuals, and other underrepresented groups)

The Best Internships for Diversity reflect the programs that received the highest average ratings from interns specifically for Diversity.
