Women, Peace and Security Intern

May 2020 - August 2020 Chicago, IL
“The mentorship I received at the Council was incredible. I had the opportunity to co-author an opinion piece published in E-International Relations with my supervisor. Additionally, every week, interns had a dedicated conversation with a different staff member at the Council, allowing us to expand our professional network. It was a super immersive experience that I would highly recommend to folks studying International Relations who are curious about working at a think tank.”
