COVID-19: How We’re Responding

About Us

A wave of youth-led feminism is spreading across West and Central Africa (WCA). How can EngenderHealth and other iNGOs partner with #youth activists and feminist orgs in #WCA to advance #SRHR?

Check out our brief on supporting feminist actors in WCA ▶️ http://bit.ly/WCABrief-EH

OPCU Director Marie Ba (@MissBa) will appear Friday, May 14th at 2:45 pm GMT, on @_51percent on @France24_en to discuss topics related the sexual and reproductive rights of women and girls in West Africa and beyond. Don't miss it.

The @Rutgers_INTL Gender-Transformative Approaches (GTA) Toolkit provides guidance for integrating GTA into communities, comprehensive sexuality education, youth friendly services, advocacy, and institutions, says @jeroenlorist (@RutgersNL).

"Rutgers knows it's crucial to engage men for gender justice, but also that only using this approach is binary & heteronormative. Therefore, we also focus on sexual & gender diversity to ensure the rights of marginalized groups are respected & fulfilled."

-@reyDP from @RutgersID

➡️@renugolwalkar says to effectively engage men & boys, we must frame gender inequality as a societal problem.

"There is not a problem with men & boys that we are trying to fix. The problem is the prevalence of harmful gender norms and power dynamics at every level of society."

Nick Danforth, a lifelong #SRHR advocate who managed the institute that won Roe v. Wade, outlines two priorities for gender-transformative SRHR programs:

1️⃣ Build local management
2️⃣ Demonstrate engaging men is cost-effective through increased data collection

#UbuntuSymposium

Renu Golwalkar, our Director of Gender, Youth & Social Inclusion, says gender-transformative change cannot be measured through contraception uptake or healthcare usage.

"The process is as important as the end goal. We must challenge existing gender stereotypes & power dynamics."

Why is engaging men important for achieving #GenderEquality?

Participants at our @MenEngage #UbuntuSymposium session say that change is more sustainable when all people are engaged, and that everyone has a stake in achieving gender equality because everyone benefits!👏👏

EngenderHealth Internship Program

Overview

The EngenderHealth internship program provides an opportunity for undergraduate students, graduate students, and recent graduates from diverse backgrounds to gain valuable experience and to meaningfully contribute to our work.

The objective of the program is to foster professional growth aligned with the student’s academic and career aspirations. EngenderHealth interns work on specific projects with a range of our programs and teams. Interships may be subject-, country/region-, or department-focused. Interns will also have the opportunity to attend internal and external meetings and participate in intern learning and engagement sessions with speakers from EngenderHealth and other global health organizations.

Types of Internships

EngenderHealth offers spring, summer, and fall internships.

Internships are usually 10 weeks and located in Washington, DC. Opportunities that allow for work outside of Washington, DC will be specified in the position description. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all US-based internships are currently remote (at least through summer 2021).

EngenderHealth believes that interns should be compensated in an equitable manner, and thus we prioritize offering paid internships. In special circumstances, we will consider unpaid internships. Internships can be for academic credit or not, depending on the intern’s school requirements and options.

Hear from our previous interns!

Ana ShimeallAna ShimeallFall 2020 Digital Communications Intern: “Interning at EngenderHealth proved to be a formative experience, solidifying my desire to pursue a career in global health during my gap year. The work I produced as a member of the Communications Team was valued, and I was surrounded by inspiring mentors who took the time to offer meaningful advice and feedback. I especially enjoyed the intern learning and engagement sessions, which enabled me to expand my global health network both within and outside of EngenderHealth. After my internship, I was fortunate to be offered a full-time, six-month position as the Communications Coordinator.”
