The Women’s Foundation of Arkansas (WFA) has announced its 2022 participants in the Tjuana Byrd Internship Program, presented by Stone Bank. Designed for college-aged women of color pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), participants will have the opportunity to work for some of Arkansas’s largest STEM companies across the state.

“For nearly 25 years, the WFA has been the leading force driving our state’s efforts to boost the economic mobility of women and girls and the Tjuana Byrd Summer Internship Program is yet another meaningful way we get to do this,” Jill Floyd, president of WFA’s board of directors, said. “This wouldn’t be possible without our incredible business partners who are committed to helping us eliminate the barriers hindering the success of women and girls in Arkansas.”
