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.

  1. Train young East Londoners to become digital pioneers - setting them up for success in an ever-changing industry, equipping them with the mindsets, skills and behaviours that allow them to adapt and see opportunities where others might see barriers.
  2. Address the serious lack of diversity in the sector - providing opportunities for talented young people from groups traditionally underrepresented in the digital industry, including: non-graduates, women and non-binary people, people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds, and deaf, disabled and neuro-diverse people.
  3. Create the ripple that becomes the wave - through Flipside we want to have a wide and tangible impact in terms of diversifying the wider industry. We will share what we learn with industry to HR practices in London's digital industries, changing mind-sets and opening up more opportunities for talented and diverse young people to enter the industry.
