Landmark College Forms Collaboration with Equinix
Landmark College, a global leader in educating neurodivergent students, is excited to collaborate with Equinix, the Silicon Valley-based digital infrastructure company, effective August 1, 2023.
The primary purpose of the 12-month agreement is to build a mutually beneficial program that includes internship opportunities for Landmark College students where possible, and professional development opportunities for Equinix staff who are serving as mentors.
Landmark College Senior Director of Employer Relations and Career Connections Jan Coplan said the two parties will be meeting as necessary to plan and evaluate the various aspects of the program in order to “create a roadmap for best practices to promote a successful partnership.”
Equinix Vice President of Talent Acquisition Nicholas Mailey said the collaboration is part of a new pathway of focus for people with learning differences. “Our company has a long-standing commitment to diversity and helping close the digital divide. Through this collaboration, we are taking additional and deliberate steps aimed to attract, support, and retain neurodivergent workers.”
