We’re an Into Games partner for 2023!
by Veronica Heath / 13th April 2023 / News
We are pleased as punch to be in partnership with our good friends at Into Games for the second year running in 2023.
After working together on several projects throughout 2022, we’re continuing our mission to build routes into the gaming industry previously out of reach to those from underrepresented backgrounds, through education, events and job opportunities.
Our work with Into Games has kept us busy, with events broadcast online to an audience of over 1500 games career seekers, all keen to learn about Rare’s internships and receive application advice. We’ve also been training 15 of our own Rare employees with public speaking skills to become Into Games Champions.
Throughout all this we’ve been working with Brandon Cole, Into Games’ Head of Partnerships & Development, who had this to say:
“It's an absolute pleasure to work alongside the wonderful folks at Rare for another year. Since our partnership began in 2021, Rare have been nothing short of fantastic – they're enthusiastic about change, love to collaborate and are full of energy to contribute and make a difference.
“We've worked together to find new underrepresented talent for the studio, trained Rare Ambassadors as confident mentors and educators, and delivered exciting careers content to audiences across the UK. Rare have an ethos of kindness and care that runs to the heart of the organisation, something that resonates hugely with our own values at Into Games.”
Safe to say we are excited for the work ahead with Into Games in 2023!
