NALMS JEDI Internship

North American Lake Management Society

USA 🇺🇸

Canada 🇨🇦


The intern will work with the NALMS Justice Equity Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Committee to support the process of completing a 5-year plan for NALMS to use in incorporating JEDI into all facets of the organization. To achieve this goal the intern will focus their efforts in these areas:
• Internal Assessment
• Outreach
• Internal Planning and Strategy
• Symposium Planning

The intern will take the lead on assessing previously collected information, and possible collection of further data, to help define this plan. The intern will have an integral role in writing the plan for NALMS JEDI incorporating the topics above, and will help present the plan to the NALMS Board for approval. The plan will be invaluable to NALMS as a guide for the JEDI Program, with a clear list of tasks to be prioritized by future JEDI interns, and a step towards making NALMS a welcoming organization for all.
