We are pleased to announce that Erick Fajardo-Ortega and Natalia Baez will be joining IES Abroad this summer as Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Antiracism Interns! They are both Posse Scholars and the IES Abroad team is ecstatic to have them on board.
IES Abroad is proud to be the only International Education Provider listed as one of Posse’s Career Partners! With this internship program, we look forward to working with dynamic Posse Scholars to spotlight international education as a career path and allow our programs to be excellent opportunities for Posse Scholars to study abroad.
For our team, building pathways to study abroad from organizations like Posse and others is one way we continue to live out our mission of educating students to become global leaders.
Erick and Natalia will provide crucial support for the Diversity Relations & Advising team, led by Noelle Baldwin, Director of Diversity Recruiting and Advising. They will also work closely with Dr. Brittani Smit, the Vice President of DEIA in the President’s Office, along with Quinn McMurtrey, a Posse Intern alumna who now serves as the Diversity Relations Manager.
