EmpowHER, a BA Women initiative, is a program that helps women land Washington, D.C.-based internships and launch careers that change the world. EmpowHER participants, who are currently or recently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program, receive six weeks of support in the spring of 2020 to build the foundation for their successful application to a Washington, D.C.-based internship, and to prepare for a summer in the nation’s capital!
Then, upon arrival to Washington, D.C., participants will gain real-world professional experience by completing their summer internship, participating in weekly professional and leadership development opportunities, and attending a variety of networking and social events. And (perhaps most importantly), they'll meet and live with their fellow cohort of EmpowHERed women—the ultimate feminist girl gang—as well as the broader BA community of alumnae and champions.
The BA Women's Alliance is closely monitoring the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak. At this time, there are no plans to cancel EmpowHER 2020. For more information about BA Women's response to COVID-19 read
