Diversity Policy | DiversityPolicy.com
Company Overview: DiversityPolicy.com will serve as a shared resource of all diversity policy in higher education and publicly traded companies, all in one place. The site is a content aggregator and search query in development (prototype is fully functional), which will be powered by text mining technology and learning algorithms. This is an early iteration of what will eventually become a multifaceted automation software system (i.e., artificial intelligence) aimed at curating content for users interested in organizational compliance, liability, rights protections, inclusivity, and cultural excellence.
Along with annotations and peer reviews of diversity policy, the site will provide an easily navigable and perpetually growing citable guide to advance equal opportunity and safety. This utility and cache of information will create opportunities for developing content analyses, frequency analyses, and statistical analyses that better informs organizations (beginning with higher education and expanding to new verticals) of trends, developments, discrepancies, policy gaps, and opportunities to advance critical policy.
- Experience in a recruiting role, ideally as a part of a small team in a high growth, technology start-up. If you’re a student, your campus organization may suffice.
- Knowledge of international sourcing resources.
- High attention to detail, excellent time management and organization skills.
- Fluency in spoken and written English.
- Fluency in languages other than English is a plus but not required.
Intern Overview: Interns may select from any of the following sample projects, but are not limited to the following …
- Build and maintain a network of potential candidates through on-going relationship management; conduct in-depth screening of potential candidates, demonstrating ability to anticipate hiring manager preferences through high interview-to-offer ratios.
- Apply advanced sourcing skills to identify talent others cannot.
- Recommend ideas and strategies related to recruitment that will contribute to the long-range growth of the company, implementing new processes and fine-tuning standard processes for recruiting that fits within DiversityPolicy’s mission to deliver the highest quality results.
- Partner with hiring managers to close and hire technical talent.
Interns will NOT be tasked with sales or anything involving financial transactions from clientele, users, or other form of purchasing. Interns will have access to a product manager and Dr. Chicotsky (the project’s founder) to explore, discuss, brainstorm, inquire, or develop all aspects and functions of their work. Dr. Chicotsky prioritizes communication and accessibility to interns to identify opportunities to provide helpful insight and direction.
Impact of Your Work: Diversity Policy’s functionality will eventually apply to policy impacting other areas of higher education and the broader market of public equities. The team’s long-term objectives include building systems for artificial intelligence and machine learning with the datasets compiled in our backend system.
Internship Duration and Weekly Requirement: 5 hours per week; 4 months. Extensions are available for students who complete successful 4-month stints. The position is part-time, which involves some collaboration with a small and motivated team. Together, the team will contribute to a search engine in development that will allow users to access and compare policy from thousands of universities and companies (beginning in the U.S., and eventually expanding internationally). The website is being developed using the Python-based Django web framework.
Weekly Schedule: Interns will be responsible for a set amount of hours each week (5-hours per week) to fulfill tasks. You will initially be paired with a product manager to guide the project. Technical Recruiters will meet with a team once per week and then set individual hours thereafter to complete benchmarks.
Benefits of Interning: Upon completing a successful internship, Dr. Chicotsky will serve as a professional reference and advocate for interns. Internship durations may be set by university partners providing academic credit (you are encouraged to explore these options within your institution; however, academic credit is not required to intern with Diversity Policy). If obtaining academic credit, the hour restrictions, payment restrictions, and other work-related matters are guided by university provisions.
Compensation: At the conclusion of a successful four-month work period (roughly the length of a long semester), a $300 stipend will be issued to the student.
