Inspired by the fantastic work of our friends at Rock, Paper Shotgun, Eurogamer is today launching a similar paid work experience programme for ethnic minorities.
Eurogamer has run a reporter internship for a few years now, and after a hiatus last year due to coronavirus we hope to run it again in 2021. But before then, we are looking for two work experience reporters to join us in a new programme open exclusively to applicants from ethnic minorities who live in the UK.
Why are we doing this? The games media has a diversity problem – this website especially. We want to improve the diversity of voices on the site and provide better representation. Our hope is this work experience programme is the start of our efforts to reflect a broader and more inclusive gaming community.
