What interns are saying about their experience with Ingenuity:
- "Designing the Partner Starter Institute allowed me to work with a range of staff members as I created the invitation list, developed content, spread the word, and finally executed. I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked on such a dynamic project as it has greatly prepared me for the next step."
- "I plan to continue working in the public education sector, advancing District policy through programming and advocacy efforts. I am eager for what is to come and cannot wait to see Ingenuity enter the next phase of their work. Thank you for a great summer!"
- "Interning at Ingenuity was a challenging extension of my graduate studies that exposed me to strategic thinking and innovation in the Chicago education arena. I was immediately welcomed into the team and experienced a fantastic office culture that valued the input of all staff members. I left the internship as a more critical thinker because of the opportunities I had to contribute extensively to the Data & Research and Public Policy initiatives.
