The Council is a first-in-the-nation, public-private partnership. Businesses pledge to take concrete, measurable steps to eliminate the wage gap in their company.
Compact recruitment is heavily focused in the first quarter of the year, so the intern will assist with recruiting companies from underrepresented industries and communities to compile a representative sample. The intern will evaluate which major companies or organizations have not been contacted and will help formulate an outreach strategy.
The BWWC is looking for a political science, women’s and gender studies, or business student dedicated to gender equality. Prior experience in local or state government or politics is a plus, as is familiarity with Constant Contact, Adobe Photoshop, STATA, and SPSS.
The internship comes with a $1500 stipend to be paid in several increments throughout the semester.
The office is located at the Simmons College School of Management (300 The Fenway Boston, MA 02115), though the fellowship may include local travel, and occasionally working remotely is fine. The internship will take place during the spring 2017 semester (flexible start and end dates) for 15-25 hours/week.
