TechnoServe works with enterprising people in the developing world to build competitive farms, businesses, and industries. We are a nonprofit organization that develops business solutions to poverty by linking people to information, capital, and markets. Our work is rooted in the idea that given the opportunity, hard-working women and men in even the poorest places can generate income, jobs, and wealth for their families and communities. With five decades of proven results, we believe in the power of private enterprise to transform lives.
TechnoServe is committed to advancing gender equality and is guided by our Gender Policy, launched in June 2015, which necessitates actions focused on both our programming and our corporate practices and culture. By investing in gender equality and women’s economic empowerment, we increase project effectiveness, strengthen our organization, and mobilize greater resources. We recognize that maximizing the inclusive economic growth that is required to achieve widespread prosperity requires the full and unencumbered participation of women and girls.
The Gender Practice leads TechnoServe’s efforts to fulfill its Gender Policy and advance women’s economic empowerment across its programs in entrepreneurship, agriculture – especially coffee – and food processing practice areas. It delivers targeted technical assistance to programs, builds a foundation of knowledge and best practice resources associated with gender equality and women’s economic empowerment, and works with a network of Gender Champions situated across the organization. The Gender Practice is looking for an intern to provide support on a range of activities that advance our women’s economic empowerment work.
- Support the development of tools, technical notes, training materials, and other resources on gender issues in agriculture, entrepreneurship, human resources, and other areas as identified
- Contribute to the preparation of internal communications
This is a remote internship. We are seeking candidates that can work at least 32 hours per week for 8-10 weeks and who have access to their own computer.
