FII-GIA Spring Interns Congress
Yesterday, on the 19th of April, FII and GIA hosted a Spring Interns’ Congress whereby Intern Boards from the various UN agencies and International Organizations in Geneva were invited to attend and discuss various issues relating to interns and internships. The goal was also to introduce ourselves, what we do and how we can help each other, as well as set a common vision for the future.
As discussed during the meeting, this Sunday, May 1st, interns will have a slot in the traditional Labour Day march. Like last year, this will be to raise attention on interns’ rights, especially on the issue of unpaid internships, with the slogan “Pay your interns!”. A facebook event for it has been created:https://www.facebook.com/events/253645624985439/
GIA, the ILO Intern Board and the WHO Intern Board have already officially joined.
