About us

The ‘Diversity in Play’ paid internship competition is a joint initiative from the video game industry and multiple universities that seeks to facilitate the integration of the next generation of video game professionals, from our classrooms to the workplace.

Through an annual creative competition in each of the partnering universities where video game professions are taught, the project rewards young professionals who reflect the Quebec of the 21st century with a five-month internship (on average). The annual formula has been designed to send a strong and recurring signal: the video game industry wants to welcome the next generation of creative talent in all its diversity, and is giving itself the means to achieve this goal.

The competition is specifically aimed at Aboriginal, Black, Racialized, Female, LGBTQ+, Disabled, Neuroatypical people, or from any disadvantaged socio-economic background, and all the intersections between these realities.
