    Veritex Community Bank’s “Future Women In Business” Summer Internship Program, now in its ninth year, is a community outreach program that is an extension of Lakewood-area Women In Business (LWIB), Park Cities/North Dallas Women In Business (PC/ND WIB) and Plano Women in Business (Plano WIB) programs for female business owners and executives.  The Summer Internship Program, founded by Veritex Senior Vice President Darlene Ellison, partners young women from these respective areas who are entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in colleges across the U.S. with female business owners and executives that are active members in our communities or involved in one of these WIB organizations. Ellison, a Lakewood native who received her business degree from SMU in Park Cities, is passionate about creating opportunities for college-aged young women coming “home” for the summer and looking for a part-time, paid internship that allows them to learn, firsthand, from a woman business owner or executive the art of leading, multi-tasking and balancing to be successful both personally and professionally.

    summer in a paid internship (usually paid hourly), where she will:

    *Learn industry-specific skills pertaining to her internship position

    *Experience the art of multi-tasking and balancing career, family, philanthropy, etc.

    *Be mentored by a seasoned female business owner/executive

                    If you know of a college-aged young woman from the area that would be interested in being considered for an internship OR if you or one of your friends/associates is a female business owner/co-owner/executive or director in a business that would entertain mentoring by offering a 15 – 30 hour/week paid internship, please contact Ellison directly at or at (214) 269-2122. Questions welcomed!
