QBP announces equity & diversity internship

By Stephen Frothingham

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (BRAIN) — QBP is launching the QBP Equity and Diversity Internship as part of its diversity intiative.

The program will expand upon QBP’s previous Women’s Internship Program to include talented students who are members of underrepresented communities and identities and/or students with a demonstrated commitment toward advancing issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Our past Women’s Internship program was really well-received by the interns, so we’re excited to expand the program this year to create more inclusivity in the industry,” said internship manager Amber Maier.

2018 summer interns will work at QBP side-by-side with QBP employees.

Izzy Kimpegal-Anliker, a 2017 product management intern, said, “This internship has made a career in the bike industry seem a lot more possible. It’s also opened up my eyes to the variety of jobs that exist within the industry.”

Applications are open from Dec. 7 through Jan. 11. There are approximately 12 positions available across a variety of departments for high school and college students. The internship will take place from June 1-Aug. 17, 2018 at the QBP headquarters in Bloomington, Minnesota. For more details, check out the QBP Equity and Diversity Internship webpage.
