The Moxie Project

The Moxie Project is a selective program for undergraduates that combines rigorous curricular, co-curricular and applied learning experiences to explore women’s leadership, public policy and social change. During an eight-week NYC summer internship sponsored by DukeEngage, students explore the contemporary and historical issues that surround women’s activism and test the ways in which policy and practice align or undermine efforts for gender equity. Spunk, daring, courage, nerve, guts, backbone. MOXIE!

Partner Organizations in New York City have included: The Third Wave Foundation; Hollaback!; Legal Momentum; Sanctuary for Families; Ms. Foundation, and; Sadie Nash Leadership Project. Other past sponsors have included: Non-traditional Employment for Women (NEW) & NYC District Council of Carpenters Women’s Committee; The Lower Eastside Girls Club; and, The Brooklyn Young Mothers Collective.

Applications due in early January through DukeEngage. Follow the Women's Center on Twitter for updates.
