It is crucial to ensure that women's voices are heard and women leaders are fully engaged on policy decisions. At WFPG, we advance women's leadership and highlight their contributions through international issues and mentoring programs. WFPG convenes professionals from across disciplines and broadens the constituency for international affairs. Substantive internships are available year-round and early applications are encouraged. Meet our interns!
WFPG provides a wonderful introduction to office work, foreign policy, and Washington, DC...The opportunity to work as a Jack-of-all-trades' intern and learn different tasks and skills is one of the strongest aspects of this internship.

For the spring of 2021, all interns will have the option to complete their internship remotely. When the WFPG office reopens, they may also choose to work in person if they are in the DC-area. At this moment, no reopening date is set.

Program Internship:

WFPG is looking for three responsible and motivated interns to focus on planning and outreach for programs featuring international affairs officials and experts. In addition to assisting with our Author and Embassy Series programs, interns also contribute to Celebrating Women Leaders Benefit Luncheons. Interns will also research foreign policy topics before events, assist in media outreach and the production of our newsletter, update the WFPG database and webpage, and complete other office tasks as assigned. Applicants must be available to work a minimum of two full days per week.

Communications and Website Internship:
WFPG is also looking for a specialized intern to focus on raising WFPG visibility and maintaining its digital presence. This intern collaborates with their fellow interns on programming and event research, but also works closely with the executive director on the WFPG's website, social media, quarterly digital newsletter, and print materials. Competitive applicants should have a keen eye for detail and design, as well as strong writing skills. Previous experience with HTML coding, design programs like Canva, or managing club or office social media accounts is helpful, but not required. Applicants must be available to work a minimum of three full days per week.

Special Benefits of Interning at WFPG:
Exposure to mid and senior-level professionals from across the international affairs field. Opportunities to learn more about international issues, leadership development and the operations of a small nonprofit. WFPG events and co-sponsored events are a great opportunity to get a feel for the way international issues are discussed, and to mingle with past and current women leaders. WFPG interns also have the privilege to attend other events in DC at the State Department, think tanks, and embassies.
