Over the summer, Verité welcomed 11 interns to work on projects across the Research, Assessments, and Business Development departments. Interns make meaningful contributions to our organization. Among the many projects summer interns worked on, they conducted research for and supported the publication of, Risk Analysis of Labor Violations Among Farmworkers in the Guatemalan Sugar Sector and Verité’s Forced Labor Commodity Atlas.
We would like to take this opportunity to recognize the following interns for their hard work and dedication to advance our mission. Thank you!
