Department: Global Member Services Reports To: Director
Catalyst's Global Member Services (GMS) Department offers a strategic consulting practice that stems from decades of Catalyst work to advance women in business and the professions. We work with companies to diagnose their workplace environment, develop strategies for comprehensive change initiatives, and plan and guide companies on strategic implementation of key inclusion activities like sponsorship and work life effectiveness. As part the GMS role within Catalyst, we build on knowledge gained with individual clients to drive impact into all our member organizations by determining key content and developing webinars, toolkits and other publications for our members and for Catalyst partner organizations (like Catalyst Member Service: Vital Signs) and by leading internal initiatives (like Member Impact Metrics and the Insight Learning Loop).
Catalyst is looking for an undergraduate or graduate student seeking credit for an unpaid internship in its Global Member Services Department.
Interns will work directly with the full GMS team, including Senior Associates through to Vice Presidents, who will supervise, train, and observe their work efforts and tasks.
This internship is a part-time position, requiring approximately 10-20 hours per week. The length of the internship and weekly work schedule are flexible, and interns may work from home for certain tasks. Virtual interns will also be considered.
Interns are required to have basic to intermediate skills in web research, an understanding of general action or applied research principles, strong attention to detail, and writing experience. Interns must be motivated, possess initiative and a sense of urgency, be technologically savvy, and be able to work independently. Though welcome, previous action or applied research and/or corporate work experience is not required and on-the-job training will be provided as part of the internship.
