Details to our Spring-Summer internship opportunities can be found below. We are interested in engaging exceptional people in the capacities of a Community Coordinator and Book Proposal Researchers.
The project term for both internships will be approximately six months (April 2019 - September 2019), with possibility of extension. A time commitment of about 10 hours per week should be expected.
Community Coordinator (Undergraduates & Graduates)
We are seeking to engage a community coordinator on a project basis to support the growth of an early-stage ecosystem of scholars and thought leaders. This group is comprised of internationally-renowned leaders who are advancing the discourse on how diversity and inclusion drives various dimensions of growth, performance, and innovation. Their base and affiliations include the following institutions: Harvard Business School, INSEAD, Uni. of Cape Town, Columbia Business School, London School of Economics, and more.
We are interested in individuals who are passionate about diversity and inclusion (D&I) and how it drives innovation, performance, and growth. This initiative is just getting started, but the pathway is ambitious. Getting there will require candidates to be able to hustle and lean into opportunities within ambiguity.
Our ideal candidate has exceptional oral and written communication skills and is able to develop engaging content. You should be a ‘people person’ with great customer service skills and the ability to moderate online and offline conversations with our community.
Book Proposal Researchers (Undergraduates & Graduates)
We are seeking researchers passionate about the intersection of diversity and innovation to support our CEO and best-selling author, Frans Johansson, in the development of his next book. By creating intersections between disciplines and fields, Frans and the Medici research team are creating new knowledge to help organizations thrive in an unpredictable world. We want you to be a part of these efforts.
Your areas of interest may include (but are not limited to): innovation and leadership, behavioral psychology/economics; organizational and change management; diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Johansson’s first title The Medici Effect (Harvard Business Review Press 2004, 2017) has become an innovation classic and the definitive book on how diversity drives innovation. It has been translated to 22 languages and its influence is felt in virtually every field and industry across the world. His second title The Click Moment (Penguin Group 2012) was named one of the top 10 best business books of the year by Fast Company.
These titles are the foundation to the Medici Approach, and it informs how we partner with clients all over the world to activate diversity into their innovative edge. The Medici Group has worked with 30 percent of the Fortune 100 and organizations from a wide range of industries including consumer goods, education, media, pharmaceuticals, retail, and technology.
