Meet the SPSSI UN/NGO Committee Interns
Priyadharshany (Priya) Sandanapitchai graduated with a Masters in Clinical and Counseling Psychology from William Paterson University. She is currently working as a research associate at the Francois Xavier Bagnoud Center of Rutgers University. Her studies examine different components involved in the context of HIV/AIDS such as mental health, substance use, biomedical prevention and mobile health, with an emphasis on social determinants of health and health disparities reduction.
Maya Godbole is a 4th year doctoral student in the Basic and Applied Social Psychology program at CUNY Graduate Center and a current intern with the SPSSI NGO Team. Maya’s research focuses around understanding, and intervening against, factors that contribute to disparities in the representation and achievement of women in competitive contexts (e.g., leadership). She is particularly interested in using social psychological research to inform policy and practice within organizations. She is currently investigating how sex discrimination policy statements can impact women’s motivation, achievement, and perceptions of organizational climate.
SPSSI is currently not accepting applications for SPSSI UN/NGO Committee internships. A call for internship applications will be posted here and circulated by email to SPSSI members when the next opportunity to apply becomes available. Please note that interns must live within commuting distance of New York City, as committee meetings and activities regularly require in-person attendance.
