Job Code: B26593
Location:
USA – Washington, DC

Description –

The National Partnership for Women & Families promotes fairness in the workplace, reproductive health and rights, access to quality affordable health care, and policies that help women and men meet the dual demands of work and family. We believe that actions speak louder than words, and for four decades we have fought for every major policy advance that has helped women and families.

The Workplace Programs Advocacy Intern will work on challenging projects across the National Partnership's workplace policy agenda, including paid sick days, paid family and medical leave, fair pay, pregnancy discrimination, and more. At the National Partnership, interns are integrally involved in our day-to-day work, and undertake a wide range of activities. Activities will help interns develop skills needed for work in the policy and advocacy world, including legislative and policy research, analysis, writing for a variety of audiences, and coalition-building. Advocacy interns will have the opportunity to support work on fact sheets and policy products through data collection, fact checking, proofreading, and editing. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend briefings, hearings, and other events on Capitol Hill and in other venues around town.

Qualifications include strong interpersonal, writing, and computer skills; the ability to manage multiple tasks and take initiative; ability to work independently and a significant degree of organization. Preference will be given to applicants with experience and demonstrated interest or academic studies in political science, public policy and/or women's issues. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply.

The internship is unpaid, but is available for course credit and may be full-time or part-time. A small transportation stipend is provided for interns who qualify.
