The Bravely Publishing Internship

A digital and print internship designed to help ensure more female role models emerge. Created in collaboration with Quotabelle.

2019-20 Internship

August 20, 2020 is the 100-year anniversary of the ratification of the US’s 19th Amendment, which became the start of granting women the right to vote. As a nod to the centennial, Quotabelle is spotlighting 100 remarkable women & girls. Among the featured quoteurs are icons alongside unfamiliar names that represent diverse ideas, background, eras, geographies, and such. 

 

For the Bravely digital publishing internship, Quotabelle has pre-selected 20 contemporary women who will appear in Quotabelle’s new book BRAVELY (July 28, 2020, Running Press / Hachette Book Group). Each group will select one individual from the list to research, write and curate content that will be published on Quotabelle.com. At the end of this project each group will present their final project to a group of internal and external stakeholders including the participants’ primary & secondary mentors, the EWAAB team and Pauline Weger, Founder & CEO of Quotabelle. 

 

This internship experience was designed to push our students out of their comfort zone, build their confidence in researching and presenting on a previously unknown and unfamiliar subject, and provide them with an expanded network of female role models.

Following the successful completion of this project students should be able to…

  • Compile information, quotations and photos on a single subject through in-depth research;

  • Effectively communicate and work together with peers, mentors and external collaborators; 

  • Confidently present research findings and convey the cultural/historical significance of their research subject to both internal and external stakeholders.

 

This program not only allows our students to hone their collaboration, research and presentation skills, they will acquire professional experience in digital curation and earn a publishing credential.

The 6-week internship took place during the Spring from March 1st - mid April. Five presentations were virtually delivered from different parts of the globe during the COVID-19 crisis to both Quotabelle and EWAAB executives. Quotes from each presentation will be featured in Quotabelle's upcoming Bravely Guided Journal. All curated content and research will soon be available on quotabelle.com.

"The presentation was the first step to overcoming my fear of public speaking. Although I was still very nervous while presenting, I am happy that I was able to step out of my comfort zone and still go through with it. With more practice and dedication, I will get even better."
