Description:

RepresentWomen is a nonprofit organization working to change the system to provide women equal access to both appointed and elected office. We advocate for institutional reforms rather than focusing on individual races because all women should be able to access politics at an equal rate to their male counterparts. We believe that a strong democracy requires equal representation for women across political, racial, socioeconomic, and geographic lines. Through research and advocacy, we are paving the way for women in American politics-- not just for some women today, but for all women for good.

RepresentWomen is seeking ResearchCommunications, Advocacy, and Development Interns to support our team.

Benefits and opportunities:

RepresentWomen interns work directly with full-time staff to develop a work plan that coordinates our project goals with the individual goals of each member of our team.

Additional benefits:

*Start and end dates are flexible, and interns who are current students are welcome to tailor their weekly hours to accommodate any academic commitments they may have.
