Business Operations Intern



DEI Collective is looking for a driven, resourceful, and passionate intern who is looking to make an impact in or learn more about the diversity, equity, and inclusion space. Our intern will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience supporting consulting client work, learn the inner workings of an early-stage startup, and make connections with a broad array of talented practitioners working in the DEI world. We're based in Brooklyn and are looking for someone who can commit to 5-10 hours per week.

Areas where you have the option to contribute:

Client-Side & Business Development:

  • Supporting engagement leads in running focus groups, analyzing survey data, and creating assessment reports.
  • Supporting engagement leads during in-person strategic workshops.
  • Researching and identifying potential sales leads.
  • Helping assemble business development proposals.

Marketing & Community:

  • Brainstorming and/or developing content for social media and our blog.
  • Supporting event planning.
  • Researching and identifying potential Collective members and innovative solutions being utilized to address DEI issues in the workplace.
  • Supporting the management of the Collective consultant community, including posting updates in the Collective Slack channel and helping put together the Collective newsletter.

Business Operations:

  • Supporting the development of processes to streamline internal and client-facing workflows.


  • Demonstrated interest in social justice and/or diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Resourceful spirit — we’re less interested in whether or not you know everything or how to do everything; rather, we care if you know how and are driven to seek out the answers.
  • Strong written and communication skills.
  • Working knowledge of social media.
  • All-hands-on-deck attitude — as a small startup, we wear all sorts of hats and aren’t afraid of getting our hands dirty.
  • Curious with a desire to learn.
  • Comfort using Squarespace and Medium is a plus, but not required.
