People of Diverse Race Internship, Performance Certification & Hiring Platform​

Social Inclusion, Discrimination, Immigration Stress

When it comes to job seeking, cultural barriers, racial discrimination, and lack of business connections are some of the common challenges encountered by young people of diverse races. To address the issue, the venture provides an online platform that allows young people of diverse races to obtain internship opportunities. In addition, by granting the interns certificates with ratings, the characteristics and strengths of these young people can be identified, thus enhancing their chance of being employed.

To create more internship and job opportunities for them, the platform is actively establishing partnerships with companies. Meanwhile, the platform issues an internship certificate to participants of the internship programme. These certificates will rate and document an intern’s performance and achievements during their internship, and provide an assessment of their internship experience. Employers can take the certificates into consideration when offering a job. While promoting fairness and diversity, the platform aims to reduce racial discrimination and enhance equality in the job market.
