During Dickinson students’ visit to EESI, they will have an opportunity to hear from EESI’s Executive Director and the Board Chair on topics including how small non-profit organizations work and how to get your foot in the door in DC and in environmental organizations. Following a conversation with the organization’s leaders, the students will have the opportunity to talk with a policy associate and the office’s operations associate about our current policy work, how we interface with Capitol Hill, and the nuts and bolts of what it is like to work for an environmentally focused organization. Students should prepare questions as we will leave plenty of time for Q&As throughout the session.
