  • Black Youth – 3 positions; 1 each at Groupe Média TFO, Ubisoft Toronto, and Magmic
  • Women in Games – 1 position at Ubisoft Toronto
  • Francophone Women in Digital Educational Media – 1 position at Groupe Média TFO

Program participants receive:

  • A week spent on site at the company with job shadowing, meetings, workshops and networking
  • A $1000 honorarium upon completion of the program
  • A pass to the iVentures conference
  • A networking dinner with fellow participants and industry contacts
