Policy & Engagement Intern

Start date with DI: June 2017

Where I am based: Bristol, UK

What I do: As a Policy & Engagement Intern I do research on the global policy landscape, along with stakeholder mapping exercises used to inform DI’s engagement strategy on various issues. I provide support organising engagement-related events and producing materials to influence and change policy. My work is primarily on finance for development.

Previous experience: I am studying for a BSc in Politics with Economics at the University of Bath. For the past two years I have been a senior counsellor in GLOW, an NGO empowering young Bulgarian girls to achieve their potential as future leaders. My experience at DI is a unique opportunity for me to explore how the global community can respond more effectively to the new challenges arising in the development landscape.
