Environmental League of Massachusetts

Real name: 
Environmental League of Massachusetts
Class Year: 

The Environmental League of Massachusetts (ELM) is committed to advocating for policy in Massachusetts that meet the scale and urgency of our environmental challenges.  Read our purpose, mission, vision, and values for ELM.

The RAY Clean Energy Diversity Fellow will work within ELM’s Policy Team, which drives the policy priorities of the organization. The RAY Fellow will also work in close collaboration with ELM Communications staff, and will be integrated into and supported by the ELM Action Fund’s cohort of Campaign and Advocacy Fellows. The cohort consists of fellows with various backgrounds, skills, and experience. The supervisor of the cohort gathers fellows from the different teams together to join weekly check-ins, discuss the parameters of their current role, and the trajectory of the projects that fellows are working on. Through these connections, fellows can learn about work across the organization, including policy advocacy as well as the political work at the ELM Action Fund. The cohort also gets together for social gatherings to get to know each other and share their future goals.

ELM Fellows have ongoing structured opportunities for connection and mentorship by full-time ELM staff. ELM encourages all existing staff to individually have lunch or coffee with any new member of the staff and incoming fellows. ELM Fellows are also supported with professional development and networking opportunities. Fellows also have the opportunity to attend events and meetings that are of interest to them.
