Diversity Awareness Partnership

EXPLORE Accounting

Diversity Awareness Partnership (DAP) is investing in St. Louis high school students and local corporate businesses to ensure a positive future in the realm of diversity. This externship program has been developed to expose, empower, and encourage students of color to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and other careers. DAP and PwC have partnered to develop this invaluable opportunity for high school students in St. Louis as a pipeline to potentially change their futures forever.
