About the Center for Financial Inclusion:
The Center for Financial Inclusion at Accion (CFI) is an action-oriented think tank that engages and challenges the industry to better serve, protect and empower clients. We develop insights, advocate on behalf of clients and collaborate with stakeholders to achieve a comprehensive vision for financial inclusion. We are dedicated to enabling 3 billion people who are left out of – or poorly served by – the financial sector to improve their lives.
Based in Washington, DC, the summer associate will work 35 hours per week with CFI supporting the Financial Inclusion Week and Latin America research teams. The associate will primarily work on outreach to stakeholders across the financial inclusion industry, developing and executing strategic communications, as well as aiding the research team with project support activities.
This is an unpaid 12 week internship with an ideal start in early June 2018.
