Creating an Inclusive and Equitable Team 

According to research conducted by the University of British Columbia, 70% of students enrolled in arts programs self-identify as members of one or more equity-deserving groups.

Through the Infuse Program, employers can connect with a pool of talented candidates from different educational and cultural backgrounds and benefit from the skills and perspectives they bring to the table. This helps organizations across Canada create a more inclusive and diverse tech workforce.

Infuse Program Webinar

We have hired several Arts students over the years as many brought with them knowledge and experience in UX/UI besides other workspace transferrable skills. The Arts students hired at Remitbee were quick learners and were able to excel and shine from day one. I am confident of their contribution and bright future in the tech space.
