Want to do work experience with Inside A Black Girls Mind?

At Inside A Black Girls Mind, we want to be able to help young Black and Brown creatives gain experience in the media and creative industries. We understand that Black and Brown women are heavily underrepresented in the industry and have less access to opportunities in the field, especially at the most senior level. 


Having more representation of Black, Brown and other POC communities is essential for us to be able to tell and express our own story, create our own narrative and feel seen. We believe that the media we are exposed to ought to reflect the multi-cultural realities of everyday life and we want to be a part of making that necessary and radical change to the industry.


This season, we are providing a range of work experience placements in areas such as:


  • Social Media - Content Creation

  • Social Media - Copywriting

  • Social Media  - Develop your own social media campaign

  • Content Creation for Social Media / Digital Media - Music, Fashion, History / Academia

  • Admin / Secretarial Tasks

  • Editorial - Writing Articles

  • Editorial - Editing Articles

  • Editorial - Creating Newsletters

You will be able to choose up to 4 areas you would like to work on in your placement.



Our placements are mostly remote and you will be able to engage with team and group activities via conference call on Zoom and our virtual personalised workspace on Trello and the WhatsApp messaging application. There may some in-person activities such as: team social events, photoshoots, in person team meetings and more. In person activities will take place in London, Coventry or Birmingham.
