Join Our Team

Collective is an NYC-based diversity, equity, and inclusion consultancy and research lab that is shifting how millennial-driven organizations build, grow, engage, and retain diverse teams. Our creative and compassionate approach to integrating DEI into the foundation of organizations is centered around amplifying marginalized voices, allowing companies to cultivate equitable teams and drive sustainable culture change. 

We believe that passionate people are the key to any company’s success, so if that’s you, check out our openings below!

Social Media Intern

We’re looking for a driven and resourceful social media enthusiast to join our team as a summer intern. As a Social Media Summer Intern, you’ll have the opportunity to help us showcase all that we do here at Collective -- from our consulting practice to our Accelerators and beyond! You’ll report directly to the Director of Strategy, but you will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience supporting consulting client work, learning the inner workings of an early-stage startup, and making connections with a broad array of talented practitioners working in the DEI world.

We are committed to making access to internships available to people across all backgrounds. Because of this, internship hours are flexible (a minimum of 15 hours a week is expected), remote work is available, and each 12-week internship comes with a $1,500 stipend.

Not-so-fun fact: Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box. Think you have what it takes, but not sure you check every box? Reach out to us anyways. We’d love to talk and determine together whether you could be a great fit!
