Our first Black internship programme – a part of the 10,000 Black Interns initiative – provided an exciting new endeavour for Black data scientists who are currently heavily under-represented within the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM community). The Black Internship Programme one of several steps that we are taking to start to address this underrepresentation.
The programme ran from 28 June 2021 to 06 August 2021. Interns were recruited and employed by an Alliance member organisation, and participated in a programme of training activities throughout the internship.
Right now we are in the process of planning a second programme – if you would like to register your interest then contact Learn@hdruk.ac.uk.
