What are you most excited to learn or experience during the externship?
Diversifying our talent pool is critical for our company's success. I believe that the work of marketing (shaping perceptions, crafting messaging) offers unique opportunities for an extern to contribute to a meaningful project that would add substance to their portfolio - even in just a few weeks. Additionally, representation matters. As one of the few BIPOCs at the Director level in our organization, I believe that students from groups who have been traditionally under-represented in publishing and educational technology would be encouraged by seeing a woman of color lead a team within our organization. Colvin really impressed the selection committee with his intelligence, drive, and clarity of vision. I look forward to working with Colvin over the next few weeks, learning from him, and supporting his career development.
