Mutual of Omaha seeks to develop and retain employees from all walks of life, recognizing that a diverse and inclusive workforce has a positive influence on the company’s overall success. And, through our internship programs, students both in high school and college can gain valuable real world experience and exposure. Two of our internship programs that support diversity and inclusion include:
- INROADS has been an active part of Mutual of Omaha’s internship program for more than 10 years. Numerous INROADS students participate in a two- to five-year internship within a business unit matched to their career related interests. Upon completion of the internship, students have an opportunity to apply for, and pursue, regular employment at the company.
- NorthSTAR stands for North Students Training for Adult Roles. Beginning in 1992, this program links Mutual of Omaha’s Information Services Operation with Omaha North High School. The program includes mentorship opportunities as well as internships in our Information Services area.
Acknowledging that today’s students will become tomorrow’s leaders, Mutual of Omaha recognizes the talents and accomplishments of minority students as they pursue further education and training through the following scholarship programs:
- Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarship Program – Mutual of Omaha and the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance (IMA) have partnered together to recognize African American students in the Omaha community. Each year, students are invited to submit applications to IMA explaining how they demonstrate the same character traits exemplified by Dr. King, including their involvement in church, extracurricular activities and community service. The IMA Education Committee reviews applications and selects the overall winners to be presented $2,000 from Mutual of Omaha to be used for further college education and/or vocational training. The recipients are also recognized at IMA’s annual Mr. Luther King Jr. Recognition Luncheon. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Mutual of Omaha Actuarial Scholarship for Minority Students – Awarded to undergraduates preparing for actuarial careers. This $5,000 award, which is paid in equal installments during the school year, is contingent upon the recipient’s continued satisfactory preparation for an actuarial career.
