Part-time applicants who can commit to at least 20 hours a week will be considered, although the Initiative prioritizes full-time applicants (32-40 hours a week). Internships will be based in Washington, DC, with the option to work remotely.
The Initiative is responsible for the implementation of President Joe Biden’s Executive Order 14031, dated May 28, 2021. Its purpose is to drive an ambitious whole-of-government agenda to advance equity, justice, and opportunity for Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AA and NHPI) communities. The Initiative is housed at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services within the Office for Civil Rights.
Interns at the Initiative are responsible for assisting the staff on a wide range of AA and NHPI issues and priorities, including addressing anti-Asian bias and hate, COVID-19 recovery, capacity building, civil rights, data disaggregation, economic development, education, health, language access, workforce diversity, and more. In addition, interns will help write policy memos and proposals, draft blogs, assist with communications and social media, help coordinate and staff events, and assist with outreach to national and local AA and NHPI organizations and leaders.
Applicants for intern positions must be undergraduate or graduate students who are enrolled or accepted for enrollment as a diploma, certificate, or degree-seeking student. Ideally, the candidate will already be familiar with AA and NHPI issues and have outstanding writing, research, communications, and computer skills.
