At the beginning of 2019, we called out to students to join us in getting the student voice heard. We promised some biscuits and an idea to be worked on. The turnout was incredible. (The biscuits were nowhere enough.) Since then, we have grown beyond being the student voice, and now hold a platform that helps young creatives and those unheard in the industry heard.
INVOLVED started much before that very first meeting. It was years in the making. The lack of diverse voices within the profession and the limited opportunities to get heard disappointed us during our studies. Our time in industry however showed us just how important it was to challenge this. We looked around to see many bright people kept outside meeting rooms, treated as another resource. We knew that we could add more than our software skills. And we knew that there were many others in the same position. So we wanted to show just how much we have to give.
