In this executive summary of a comprehensive research study, IISD examines the impact of IISD's internship programs and makes recommendations for consideration. Since 1997, IISD has graduated 311 interns, many of whom are interviewed about sustainable development leadership in general, and about the IISD internship experience in particular. "It is very difficult for someone without experience to find entry-level opportunities," commented one intern. "The internship really got my career going."
