Position description

Mission

Network 20/20 bridges the gap between the private sector and the foreign policy worlds, engaging rising and established professionals meaningfully in foreign policy. We promote the open exchange of ideas on foreign affairs and essential people-to-people connections across international borders. We foster a community of diverse, smart, and engaged people, people who come from different countries, faiths, generations, and political views, all of whom are interested in better understanding the various trends and divergent interests that are shaping geo-economics, politics, and culture. We strive to promote the idea of global citizenship—that being an informed citizen of one’s country means understanding the global context and actively contributing one’s ideas and experiences to the conversation.

We are seeking a part-time (Monday – Friday) fourteen-week commitment. This internship requires a commitment of two-three days a week (which can be arranged between you and Network 20/20 during your first day). This is a paid internship.

  • Record and organize information relating to Network 20/20’s membership
  • Perform general administrative duties, such as: Assisting with writing and updating the office protocol, and organizing promotional materials
