Fair Trade Internship Program Overview
Dr. Bronner’s is committed to building the Fair Trade movement in as many ways as possible. To this end, we launched a Fair Trade Internship Program in 2017 whose aim is to inspire aspiring business students with first-hand knowledge of how a viable Fair Trade business actually functions. Through a weekly Fair Trade curriculum, rotational exposure to different aspects of our business operations, and individual department-specific project work within the “engine room” of the company, our interns will both contribute to the business and, more importantly, will learn about Dr. Bronner’s, Fair Trade supply chains, and Fair Trade principles in action. We hope that this program will plant seeds in the minds of our interns and help shape the careers of future business leaders.

To gain a broader understanding of both Dr. Bronner’s as a business and of Fair Trade principles, Interns will attend weekly seminars at lunch featuring different department leaders following the program curriculum outlined below. In some cases, Interns will also spend time during that week working with that department (e.g. filling soap, doing a foam event, demo in-store, etc.). Topics of Fair Trade Principles include: Dr. Bronner’s Fair Trade Projects, Fair Trade Premiums: How they work, Fair Trade Schemes: what exists?, Authentic Fair Trade: what is it and how can you tell?, Domestic Fair Trade, Fair Trade Activism: the frontier, Keys to Fair Trade Success, & The Future of Fair Trade.
