Apply now to join our Summer Class of 2020! 

Description:

RepresentWomen is a 501 c3 nonpartisan nonprofit organization working to change the system to provide women equal access to both appointed and elected offices. 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 men. 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 Research, Outreach & Advocacy, and Nonprofit Development & Administration Interns to support our team. All internships with RepresentWomen are completed on either a voluntary or for-credit basis for each season. See below for more information about each role, and the present availability of internships with our team for the coming summer. 

The RepresentWomen team reviews all applications on a rolling basis and strives to keep all intern candidates up-to-date on the status of their applications. Please do not hesitate to contact our team at internships@representwomen.org if you have any questions about these internship roles, present or future openings, or the application process. As stated below, RepresentWomen is an equal opportunity employer with a strong commitment to affirmative action and nondiscrimination. 

*Our team is monitoring the present situation with COVID-19 in the United States and, following local guidance, all interns and staff are now completing their work remotely. As we continue to accept and review applications for the summer, we understand that it may not be possible for new interns to join us in-office until the public health risk declines. If you would like to hear more about how we are working with present interns and staff remotely, or how the present situation may shape your time with us this summer, please contact our team at internships@representwomen.org

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. Over the course of the first week of the internship, our team meets one-on-one with each intern to assess what projects will best suit their experience and interests, while also providing them with the support and opportunities they need to make their time with us both productive and meaningful.

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.
