  • Cotton Intern
    • The Cotton Initiative for the Responsible Sourcing Network seeks one intern to research the activities of brands and retailers to address forced labor in their supply chains. Each year, the government of Uzbekistan orders over one million children and adults to labor in the country’s cotton fields for three months, providing them little to no reimbursement for their work. In an effort to end this practice of systemic, government-led exploitation, over 150 of the world’s largest apparel brands and retailers have committed to avoiding Uzbek cotton. RSN requires a meticulous and avid researcher to compile information on exactly what brands and retailers have committed to, what they are doing to adhere to their commitments, and what they are doing to ensure the yarn and textile suppliers in their value chains are meeting their requirements.
