The Century Foundation’s Summer Scholars is an internship program designed to foster skill sets in order to excel in the public policy sector. Scholars will build important skills, add to their portfolios, meet interesting people, and hopefully even have some fun. The program is a hybrid, eight-week, full-time position, running from Monday, June 12 through Friday, August 4. For more information on the program, visit tcf.org/SummerScholars.
The Women’s Economic Justice Scholar will work on projects that promote intersectional solutions that advance women’s economic security, with a focus on work and care. Policy priorities include child care and early learning, paid family and medical leave, the child tax credit, equal pay, paid sick days, workplace harassment protections, and issues facing domestic workers and other vulnerable groups. Our goals are to ensure that these issues are central to the national economic conversation, and to promote women’s economic justice through state and federal legislation and executive action. You will assist in conducting research and expanding the capacity of the program to work on the wide range of relevant issues on the national, state, and local levels. You will work on projects that are timely, relevant, and use data to construct narratives that help advance women’s economic justice.
