We just heard that The Rockefeller Foundation is still hiring for its Innovation Internship, which wraps up in September 2014. If you’re looking for something to do for the rest of the summer – or more likely, if you want to make a note of this opportunity and inquire for next summer – read on.
The Rockefeller Foundation’s mission has been to promote the well-being of humanity throughout the world. They pursue this mission through dual goals: advancing inclusive economies that expand opportunities for more broadly shared prosperity, and building resilience by helping people, communities and institutions prepare for, withstand, and emerge stronger from acute shocks and chronic stresses. To achieve these goals, The Rockefeller Foundation works at the intersection of four focus areas – advance health, revalue ecosystems, secure livelihoods, and transform cities – to address the root causes of emerging challenges and create systemic change.
The Innovation intern will work with the Innovation Pathway team, headquartered in New York. The Intern’s time will be split across supporting the design and development of distinct innovation solutions, such as financial or technological solutions, and of capacity building tools that enable the Foundation, its grantees and partners to continuously innovate to solve complex development problems. The Intern will conduct research, interviews, plan meetings, attend convenings (when appropriate), and gain exposure to several focus areas of the Foundation. The Intern will analyze existing trends and tools, develop reports and presentations and manage projects. The Intern will report to the Senior Program Associate on the Innovation Pathway team.
