Interns serve on Mondays and Wednesdays, from June 15th through August 5th.

Women Employed's Summer Leadership Program, generously sponsored by The Pattis Family Foundation, provides a unique opportunity for professional skill building and practical experience by exposing a team of interns to leadership training, front-line research, and a first-hand awareness of the barriers low-paid workers experience. The program seeks to introduce students and recent graduates to all areas of nonprofit work through workshops, guest speakers, and projects.

The interns' project work may consist of: facilitating issue-based discussions with staff and interns; designing and implementing public information and awareness campaigns for specific Women Employed issues; conducting research and outreach on issues relevant to low-wage women; conducting interviews; and/or assisting with other program work as needed. Over the course of the summer, interns will also become familiar with the history and future of the women's movement; participate in professional development workshops on effective advocacy, nonprofit organizational development, and communications; and explore aspects of social justice work with guest speakers.
