The Equality for HER Internship Program was created by Lori Ro and Blair Imani. The internship was developed with accessibility in mind as a priority. Participants are based all over the world and engage with educational materials through 100% curriculum, trainings, and workshops.

The internship is focused on skill cultivation and professional development. Participants receive Equality for HER's syllabus, course material, and exclusive webinars from a variety of experts. Key course material includes trainings and workshops on Inclusive Language, Digital Storytelling, Personal Branding, and Networking.
At the conclusion of the internship, the participants are invited to create a final project for publishing on the Equality for HER media platform.
