Which industries are involved so far?
Leading representatives from seven sectors, including Accountancy, Healthcare Data Research, Healthcare Management, Insurance, Legal Services, Marketing & Advertising and Recruitment, have already committed to play their part in the 10,000 Black Interns programme. A wide range of other sectors will join the programme board soon.
How will the programme be rolled out across the 20 sectors?
The #100blackinterns initiative will serve as the template for other industries to follow with the aim of at least 20 sectors joining the programme, each offering at least 100 internships per year for five years. These internships will begin in late 2021/2022 in order to reach the ultimate goal of providing 10,000 internships to young Black people.
