Learning environement
Independent consultant (Former Employee), New York, NYAugust 21, 2013
Pros: friendly environment
Cons: conflict setting (under rebels control)
I liked working with IRC firstly as an organization working in humanitarian setting where there is a huge need of staff and the kind of my work " Engaging men through accountable practice"in ending violence against women and girls. I think is more about the impact of the work I do than more than just money as we aim to build free violence society where women and girls are free to express their need and access to opportunity.
- I really appreciated working with my colleagues, having the same objective in a challenged setting.
-The hardest time: is when I was not able to go to the field and support field staff because of the fighting in the region. Evacuated and relocated several times.
- It was during the pilot testing activities in one of the community when an old man testified " if I knew that violence against women and girls impacts also my life, I would not deny my girls to go to school. Maybe she could become a doctor and or Minister and could support me and my wife.

Intern (Former Employee), Dallas, TXJuly 17, 2013
Pros: clients and workplace environment
Cons: unpaid
I was a summer intern at the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and truly enjoyed my time there. It was when I first became passionate about refugee rights and healthcare advocacy. I learned a great deal about Dallas healthcare and educational systems and was given advancing degrees of responsibility throughout the summer.
The co-workers were wonderful, positive individuals to work with and the management was as efficient as possible. The hardest part of the internship was the unpaid aspect, naturally. However, it was a great experience.
