Through Flipside, we are working with top agencies to address the serious lack of diversity in London’s digital economy, and provide opportunities for unemployed or underemployed young people aged 18-25 year olds from Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Waltham Forest.
12 talented young people from groups traditionally underrepresented in the digital industry, are taking part in a ground-breaking three month training course designed to be experiential, practical, collaborative and broad, with the aim for them to become digital pioneers of the future, sending a signal to industry to urgently update its approach to diversity and inclusivity in the workforce.
The programme is a collaboration between A New Directionand the Skills Lab with funding and support from the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC).
Learners receive world-class insights and training delivered by four founding agencies (Beyond, Made by Many, Sennep, ustwo) and five new delivery agencies joining for this 2nd round (BIO Agency, Designit, Pixeled Eggs, Reading Roomand This Place). Hobs 3D is a host partner.
Now running in its second year, Flipside was a finalist in D&AD’s Impact Awards in 2018.
