The Campaign

 

What

This is an awareness raising campaign directed to employers/organisations offering unpaid internships.

 

Why

Employers are not aware of the negative social impact of unpaid internships and their responsibility in the creation of social inequalities and the perpetuation of elites.

 

Goals

To foster a sense of responsibility on the social implications of unpaid internship offers.

To make companies/organisations aware that by offering unpaid internships they are generating social inequalities and reproducing elites.

To make companies/organisations aware that through unpaid internships they are not getting the most skilled or qualified person for the position (lost candidate), but the one who can afford it.

 

How

By targeting unpaid internship offers and encouraging people to send a “letter of non-application” to organisations offering unpaid internships.
