About the Opportunity:

This spring, we are looking for a graduate school intern to work in our New York office 1 to 2

Noyes’ history of responsible, sustainable and impact investing. Specific projects range from
conducting research and coordinating the writing and production of a research publication
that looks at Noyes history of social investing and the learning from our recent impact
investing advisor search to working with the president and finance committee to complete

exploration of the linkage between impact investing and social justice and the translation of  our program goals into our investment strategy.
