Summer Internship – Diversity and Inclusion

An internship with The Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago is not like your average internship. We can offer you a dynamic, collaborative, and team-focused environment you won’t find anywhere else.  You will be engaged in projects that will provide you with real world, hands-on experience in the exciting world of financial services.  We are currently seeking a summer intern(s) to work in our Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), which supports and leads bank-wide diversity and inclusion (D&I) initiatives.  Successful individuals should be following an academic track in Computer Science, Business, Finance or Sociology, and have some experience or interest in the fields of diversity, inclusion, sociology or related topics.
