Next Wave in Business (NWB) is a nonprofit organization that provides a pipeline for employers to recruit Black and Latinx undergraduate students.
Our mission is to increase the number of Black and Latinx undergraduate students who have internships and full-time employment at Fortune 500 companies. One way NWB will accomplish this mission is via its “Next Wave Conference” starting in October 2018. Within the first three years of operations, NWB will create a strong undergraduate recruiting pipeline that cultivates a combination of 1,000 internships and full-time career opportunities for Black and Latinx undergraduates.
NWB will help eradicate the employment gap for underrepresented minorities, creating a business world that reflects, respects, and rewards people of color.
