Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging

ACT team members are located across the U.S. and bring invaluable multiculturalism and thought diversity that informs and enriches all that we do.

ACT is as much a champion for equity, access, and success for our team members as we are for education and the workforce. We aim to provide an environment where team members are appreciated for their work and contributions. We are advocates for each other and are actively exploring more ways to capture diverse perspectives and experiences.

We are continually seeking to create a more diverse and inclusive set of voices internally, to ensure that we are better able to understand and address the needs of all students, educators, and the wider workforce – particularly the underserved. This is how our team members have real world impact.

We believe our internship program is a great opportunity to help students gain the knowledge and experience they will need when entering the workforce for the first time because it is dedicated to projects that align the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary for work in their field of study.
