As the relative power of the United States’ global competitors increases, key aspects of global security rest increasingly on the capacity of great powers—China, the EU, India, Japan, Russia, and the United States— to cooperate in tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges. Among these are climate change, cyber security, illicit trafficking, pandemics, proliferation, and terrorism. Because of their transnational nature, collaboration amongst great powers is essential to address these challenges; yet cooperation is hardly guaranteed. Can adversarial relationships be set aside, frayed alliances restored, and old arrangements re-purposed to achieve the broader common good?
On January 27, at 6:30 p.m. EST, the Center for Careers and Internships and Middlebury in DC, in collaboration with the Middlebury Professional Network and the Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, will host Live From DC: Global Security and Great Power Relations, a discussion among professionals who have a variety of vantage points on these and other transnational security issues and possible solutions.
This discussion will be conducted via Zoom webinar, connecting the professional guests with students from both the Middlebury and Monterey campuses, as well as, alumni and parents of the Middlebury community. The panelists include:
- Host: Mark Williams, Director, Rohatyn Center for Global Affairs, Middlebury College
- Stewart M. Patrick P’24, Senior Fellow, Council on Foreign Relations
- David Wisner ’04, Deputy Director for Press & Strategic Communications for Near Eastern Affairs Bureau, State Department
- Stone Conroy ’10, Manager, Geopolitical Analysis & Intelligence, United Airlines
About SimpL: Through the power of a small team of 30 people with ages ranging from 16-30, SimpL has developed a product that uses cutting edge pose estimation research to ensure that no one gets injured while working out. In short, they are revolutionizing and democratizing the intersection of technology and fitness. The company just placed in the top 10 of University startups in Amazon’s Web Services 2020 competition.
About the Role: While your internship would be unpaid, the knowledge and experience you would gain from reporting directly to the CEO, CTO, CMO, and Creative Director daily of a company that’s on the cusp of receiving angel funding in the second quarter, would set you apart when applying for jobs upon graduating from Middlebury. If you prove yourself a good worker, you’ll also be eligible for a spot on the team.
Why SimpL? If you were to join the team, you’d be working for a cause that will change the world. Their mission statement is to democratize fitness and health; to mitigate and eliminate unnecessary injuries in the weight room, to supplement and improve the occupational therapy/recovery process following an injury. Here is a video behind what they are doing:
What they are looking for
The team is looking for a creative mind willing to stretch out of their own comfort zones. The company is entirely “outside the box” and so the way they’re developing a product is in the same vein.
Technical Skills Needed:
- Adobe Suite (particularly premiere, illustrator and photoshop)
- Someone who can draw technically and be able to incorporate and manipulate those drawings in adobe illustrator
- Videography skills (shooting and editing)
- Marketing skills (social media and branding)
If you have anything you think you can offer the team, REACH OUT.
