The Working Lunch Is Helping Underrepresented Australians Break Into The Games Industry

The Working Lunch has opened up its mentorship program for 2019. The program serves underrepresented Australians and New Zealanders in the games and tech industry who feel that they’d benefit from mentorship and support to thrive in our industry.

The program was launched last year by Ally McLean (an Australian game developer). The first year was incredibly successful and provided many newcomers in the local industry with support from some of the industry’s leading mentors (across game developers, journalists, communications experts, lawyers and finance managers).

The program currently exists in Sydney and is confirmed to be expanding into Adelaide and Wellington, NZ. It’s also looking to extend out to Brisbane and Melbourne.

The program is currently open to women and non-binary applicants. If you’re looking to get some worthy advice and mentorship, you can apply right here. Be aware that applications close on February 19th.

I’ve had the privilege of working with many of those who are apart of this program, and highly recommend their support and guidance.
