2020 Intern Reflection:
I worked as a research analyst intern with the Time's Up Impact Lab. I worked on finding relevant research to our research library that informs the work we do- pay equity, dignified work, ending sexual harassment in the workplace, ending all types of work place discrimination, paid family leave, etc. I also did research on topics lay the gender wage gap, Black women survivors of sexual violence, and culture change and wrote literature reviews on these topics to help inform the research and advocacy efforts of the Impact Lab. In my first week, I worked with the research team to draft a monthly blog based on the jobs day numbers from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. I did so much more as well.
The team is so close and everyone is eager to engage with interns. I met with everyone on the team, including the actual CEO and all the high level people. They were all so gracious, and everyone was always open to hearing my input on meetings and to hear my ideas.
