We have also partnered with SEO Alternative Investments to establish an internship-program focused on minority students for the Summer of 2019 and will repeat the program in 2020. We have also made it a requirement for investments that we lead to have a diversity policy in place, and have also established a number of internal initiatives to increase diversity within Atomico.
