About Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination

The Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) is the state agency charged with enforcing the state's anti-discrimination laws in the areas of employment, housing, credit, education, public accommodations, mortgage, and lending. State law prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry, age, sex, sexual orientation, disability, genetics, military status, and retaliation. In addition to these bases, the Massachusetts fair housing law also prohibits discrimination on the basis of children, public assistance, veteran status, and marital status.

Investigations Intern

June 2018 - August 2018 Boston, MA
“I was originally hired as an administrative intern but after starting was moved to the Investigations team. The internship has one-on-one supervisor interaction, and they provide good feedback and constructive criticism. The internship has a lot of independent work and I was able to listen to music and podcasts. Completing tasks quickly and before deadlines will be received well and you will get the opportunity to learn more and take on more responsibility. ”
