Discussion Group: Building Successful Campus Partnerships

Over the last few months, GeoComply has strategically built strong relationships with student clubs and organizations that focus on supporting DEI and equity-deserving groups. With these partnerships, we've been able to promote our internships to build a strong pipeline of highly engaged, diverse candidates.
