Internship Offer: Web Publisher in a Social Startup
Internship starting on February 7, 2022, for 6 months - Geneva (Switzerland)
BØWIE is an initiative of Be You Network. We create engaging actions and mindset-shifting content, so that gender norms no longer define who you are, who you can love, or what you can achieve. Since 2010, whether in the fields of education, audiovisual, technology or art, our participative actions have enabled more than 300,000 people to take action, in more than 60 cities in Switzerland and across the world. Our work has been recognized by the Swiss Confederation, the Mercator Foundation, the World Economic Forum, Ashoka, MassChallenge and Le Temps.

BØWIE Creators: A community platform where queer and feminist people from around the globe have access to curated content and products from worldwide creators reshaping gender through film, fashion, art, music & more. More information on our Instagram account & website.
BØWIE Incubator: A 6-month programme that allows anyone to launch a gender and LGBTIQ+ project, surrounded by a community that provides inspiration, skills, and support (e.g. business development, project management, communication and marketing, fundraising, networking).
