AIGA Minnesota is excited to launch a new initiative called the AIGA Minnesota Fair Internship Compensation Pledge. The U.S. Department of Labor has released a series of statements that clarifies proper payment policies for internship positions. In an effort to help educate the public and our members about this issue, AIGA Minnesota has developed a pledge that we hope you will endorse. Endorsers of the pledge will exist on our website as follows, with your firm’s name as a link to your website and provided logo, denoting that you are a supporter of fair and ethical compensation of interns.

 

Please visit: https://aigaminnesota.org/education/fair-internship-pledge/ to complete the pledge.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about this initiative: please contact AIGA Minnesota’s director of education, Jennifer Price, at [email protected].

Thanks for your support,

The board of directors of AIGA Minnesota
