Further strengthening our long-standing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, Nationwide Financial launched an apprenticeship program in which graduates of Columbus City Schools work part time at Nationwide while earning an associate degree, funded mostly by Nationwide, from Columbus State Community College.
This program is attracting a diverse group of students who might not have previously considered a career in financial services. The goal is for these apprentices to be hired full time at Nationwide upon receiving their associate degree, creating a pipeline for local talent and employment opportunities for the next generation.
Economic Empowerment Day
As part of our ongoing commitment to economic empowerment and equity, Nationwide was a presenting sponsor of and active participant in Economic Empowerment Day, part of a weeklong event marking the centennial of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre, which destroyed what was known as the city’s Black Wall Street. The empowerment event drew national attention for the timeliness of its message and its call for closing the racial wealth gap in the U.S.
