This is an exciting opportunity to gain valuable work experience at an international development non-government organization with a focus on data use and evidence-based decision-making. The main focus of this internship will be to conduct a study to determine how PCI program teams engage with different types of stakeholders (such as government, other NGOs, local communities, etc) to effectively share data and evidence to stakeholders for collaborative learning and improved accountability.
Our goal is to identify and document what approaches and tools are currently being used across PCI projects in multiple countries to answer questions such as: how do teams reach out and activate external stakeholders, how are data best shared with different types of stakeholders, and what approaches and share-out strategies work best with different stakeholder audiences? This internship will be a good fit for those with genuine interest in understanding how programs engage with local stakeholders and strive to use data for decision-making in real-world settings and in community led development.
The intern will work under the direction of a Technical Advisor in PCI’s MERL (Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning Unit), and will be expected to be actively engaged in developing study questions, methodology, and full execution of this project, as well as responsible for submitting a final written report deliverable. A PowerPoint presentation will be delivered to MERL and other interested PCI staff at the close of this internship.
