Waystar, a leading provider of healthcare payments software, announced a multi-year partnership with INROADS, a nonprofit organization committed to building long-term career pathways for diverse and underrepresented talent. As part of the collaboration, Waystar is launching an internship program that will empower students from local colleges and universities to find meaningful careers in the healthcare technology industry.
With the global healthcare, IT market growing exponentially and digital transformation across all industries accelerating, demand for tech talent is at an all-time high. Hiring, developing, and retaining professionals from diverse talent pools are a source of competitive advantage as businesses look to close the tech talent gap within their organizations.
During the 10-week program, Waystar will provide eligible students with salaried internships, as well as comprehensive mentoring and leadership development opportunities. Each student will have access to learn industry-relevant technical skills across various departments.
The INROADS internship program will run from June through August 2021. Students will have the opportunity to complete the internship in-person at Waystar's corporate headquarters, fully online or through a hybrid option.
Waystar's partnership with INROADS builds on the company's current initiatives aimed at cultivating, recruiting, and hiring diverse and underrepresented talent in the healthcare technology industry. In addition to INROADS, Waystar is also a proud partner of Code Louisville, a program dedicated to helping people kick start their careers in tech. Through its partnership with nonprofit Bit502, Waystar also offers apprenticeships for those looking to learn on the job while earning their Associate's Degrees from local community colleges.
INROADS is the world's largest nonprofit organization committed to developing the leadership of talented and underrepresented youth. With more than 30,000 alumni worldwide, INROADS has increased the number of C-suite executives in corporate America. Founded in 1970, INROADS' record of impact extends more than 50 years.
