Equality Now has research and campaign internships (all offices -- New York, London and Nairobi), media and outreach internships (New York and Nairobi only), and fundraising and accounting internships (New York only). Research and campaign interns generally conduct legal and fact-finding research and draft Actions and campaign correspondence as the work requires. Media and outreach interns help out with media outreach, including assisting with drafting columns for newspapers and targeting other local media outlets. Outreach may also involve assisting in growing the Equality Action Network membership. Fundraising and accounting interns generally do research, report drafting, spreadsheets, special events work, filing and other office duties as assigned. Interns may also attend meetings at the United Nations and participate in other advocacy efforts to further Equality Now's work.
Summer interns spend 8-10 weeks full-time with Equality Now and semester interns spend approximately 10 hours a week with Equality Now. Please note that internships are unpaid and no arrangements can be made for housing or visas.
