Internship Location: Madison, WI
Organization Type: Higher Education
Policy Areas: Social Justice
As an Our Wisconsin intern, I created programming around social justice and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) values for first year students. Signature programs include the Our Wisconsin training, U Got This, and many more. Another responsibility of mine included intern-planned and led pop up events, where I was able to delve deeper into a social justice interest of mine. With each of our events, we were required to create post-event assessments that evaluate learning objectives and how well students engaged with them. Through this process, I was able to identify key stakeholders (key audiences), translate qualitative data into quantitative data, as well as create programs that are tailored to meet the needs of students in a sustainable way that focuses on longevity.
