  • Write, edit, and incorporate feedback on profiles
  • Execute changes on client-facing platform and quality assurance
  • Take ownership of projects and see them through from start to finish over course of the internship

  • Interest in impact investing, social enterprises, social impact, and storytelling
  • Strong writing, interviewing, and editing skills
  • Excellent communication, presentation, creative, and problem-solving skills
