We envision a world in which everyone is able to define and fulfill their life aspirations unconstrained by gender bias.

WAPPP seeks part-time (up to 14 hours/week) undergraduate interns for the academic semesters and full-time (35 hours/week) undergraduate interns for the summer to aid a high-functioning administrative team. Interested candidates should be independently-motivated college students with a demonstrated interest in advancing gender equity who are comfortable with working under minimal supervision. This is a paid position starting at $15/hr. Students from all undergraduate years are welcome to apply.
