Internship Roles with American Association of University Women CT

We are looking for dedicated and passionate students to intern with the American Association of University Women CT. Our Organization  is the nation’s leading voice promoting equity and education for women and girls. Since our founding in 1881, AAUW members have examined and taken positions on the fundamental issues of the day — educational, social, economic, and political. Our mission is to advance gender equality for women and girls. While we do advocate for equity, we are nonpartisan, fact-based, and focus on integrity, inclusion and intersectionality. Students who apply will help with this mission and strengthen our foundation.
