Professor Martin Levermore: HDR UK’s Black Internship Programme
"It's so important to have companies that represent [black] people. Because if you see people like you, who look like you, you're gonna feel like they have your best intentions."
On Today's episode of The G Word, Sophia, the Design Researcher for our Diverse Data team, is joined by Professor Martin Levermore, hub member and pioneer of the programme, alongside two of the programme's interns, Samuel and Mbasan.
They discuss the need for black talents in genomics and how the Black Internship Programme is breaking barriers to enable the diversification process. They also discuss the importance of representation when asking for sensitive information from unrepresented communities, breaking the distrust to gain a broader insight into our genomic data.
