What former interns are saying
My Operations internship gave me a global perspective on LGBTIQ+ issues. I learned how the cultures in which LGBTIQ+ people live shape their identities and the types of challenges that they face. It gave me the opportunity to learn about myself, while helping others. - Bex Montz, Columbia University
