The Great British Diversity Experiment (Manchester Launch)
Wed 20 January 2016, 19:00 – 21:00 GMT
The Great British Diversity Experiment (#diversityexperiment) seeks to prove that diversity leads to better solutions, experiences and ultimately a better world. We plan to do this by recruiting folks from a variety of different communications and tech companies and designing them into highly diverse teams who will then use culture and code to hack some of the world’s biggest problems.
If you are a creative, strategist, creative technologist, designer, illustrator or simply passionate about solving problems, and could not make it to our London launch, we would love you to join us at our Manchester briefing. Our aim is to put together at least 5 diverse teams at the event itself and to allocate you at least one mentor each (Mentors TBC).
Please note: The Great British Diversity Experiment is not just a one off talk. It is a one month long experiment which we expect will take up about 3 hours a week of your time and will also be contributing to the research project. You'll be in a team, constructed to be truly diverse, and working on a world-changing brief. And of course if your idea is chosen get a money can't buy prize. So please only sign up if you are willing to make this commitment.
