This remote online internship and seminar will focus on the role non-governmental organizations play in education and development related to gender and sexuality as they intersect with race, migration, religion, disability and other axes of diversity. Participate in a month-long online internship with a Dutch NGO that focuses on education, activism, and/or development within the feminist, queer, minority, and migrant communities. Your work with the organization will be supplemented by virtual lectures and workshops on work-based norms in a global office; the position of NGOs in global development schemes; social responsibility, voluntourism and white saviorism; making a career of NGO work; and funding and government reporting, among others. You will be expected to contribute to the mission of the organization. Past contributions included developing surveys, completing a short-term research project, and creating content for educational and promotional material.
