Why we focus on diversity

Companies in the top-quartile for gender diversity on executive teams were 21% more likely to outperform on profitability and 27% more likely to have superior value creation.

Companies in the top quartile for racial and ethnic diversity are 35% more likely to have returns above national industry medians.

Besides being the right thing to do, studies show that a more diverse workforce provides a competitive advantage.  Bringing in people with different backgrounds and world views leads to better decision making, greater innovation, and higher engagement in the workplace.  Additionally, DEI efforts improve a company’s reputation making it easier to hire top talent.

diversIT Scholars

The diversIT program was designed to increase the number of minority candidates in STEM related fields by offering substantive financial and emotional support to HBCU students enrolled in a STEM program.  

Increasing Black graduates in STEM fields

We work with our clients to award co-branded scholarships to Black students entering STEM programs at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HCBUs).

Throughout these scholar's college careers, they are provided mentorship and meaningful internship opportunities with clients, funded by us.

To ensure they have every opportunity possible, we provide stipends for housing, professional clothing, and more to ensure they are prepared for internships,

We also make candidates available for hire to clients and within the PTP client network.


Primary Talent funds scholarships using a percentage of every hour we bill our clients. This funding is used to provide a number of benefits for STEM students, including:

  • Provide $2500 scholarships to STEM students attending HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities)
  • Clothing and housing stipends to remove barriers for meaningful internships in high cost of living locations
  • Mentorship throughout their college career

Help us improve Black representation in STEM fields
