Summer 2017 Intern Board Congress
Organised by the Fair Internship Initiative Geneva, with support from the Geneva Interns Association, the Summer 2017 Intern Board Congress took place at the Graduate Institute – Picciotto Rooms on the 7th of June 2017.
Represented at the meeting were
ILO Intern Board
UN Environment House
The Intern board congress is a recurrent event that takes place two to three times a year. It is an opportunity to bring together all the Intern Boards at the UN and other International Organizations in Geneva. It and the perfect opportunity for them to get to know each other, build connections, discuss our common goals, and achieve a platform for more UN- wide coordination and collaboration when it comes to improving the conditions of our internships.
The goal of this session was to (re)introduce FII, GIA and all the represented board, discuss lessons learned since the last Intern Board Congress, as well as ways forward for the next year. A key discussion point that came from the meeting was on the upcoming intern survey for 2017.
