Company Description

Grist is a nonprofit, independent media organization dedicated to highlighting climate solutions and uncovering environmental injustices. Since 1999, we have used the power of journalism to engage the public about the perils of the most existential threat we face. Now that three-quarters of Americans recognize that climate change is happening, we’ve shifted our focus to show that a just and sustainable future is within reach. As Grist’s solutions lab, Fix seeks to amplify and elevate the work of emerging climate leaders by combining creative storytelling with network-building and events. 

Job Description

Grist seeks a paid, part-time intern (20 hours/week) with interest or experience in journalism or climate justice to join the Fix team. This 10-week assignment is set to begin in mid October, with exact timing negotiable. 

Supporting Fix’s editorial team, the intern will primarily help produce the 2022 Grist 50 — an annual list that celebrates the innovators and visionaries working on equitable solutions to the climate crisis.

As intern, you will:

  • Organize, research, and vet nominations for the Grist 50 list
  • Request and organize photos for the Grist 50 list
  • Work with Fix’s program assistant to maintain and update a database of Grist 50 honorees
  • Research and contribute ideas for Fix’s digital magazine issues and newsletter
  • Contribute ideas and content for social media 
  • Copyedit and fact-check stories and newsletters as needed
  • Report and write short profiles of Grist 50 honorees as needed
  • Provide general support to the Fix storytelling, networking, and events teams as needed

Qualifications

You’re well-suited for this role if you’re a self-starter, hyper-organized, and have a passion for Fix’s mission. Bonus points for a sense of humor and a fondness for spreadsheets. Interns are typically enrolled at a college or university while interning.

Additional Information

To apply, please submit a résumé and cover letter explaining why you’d be a great fit for the Fix team in general and the Grist 50 in particular. 

All your information will be kept confidential according to EEO guidelines.
