Topic: Advocacy

Format: Roundtable

Vault Recording: Not Recorded

In this roundtable, we will have in-depth discussions on engaging and maintaining existing talent within our industry. Mentorship programs target women, but must extend their reach to have women mentor male leaders on how to be supportive of women in all phases of their journey in game development. We want to hear about and from women in the industry about what the future of women in games looks like. Men are invited to join the roundtable, but are asked to make it a point to listen and learn.


Attendees will get a chance to discuss what the future of women’s involvement and leadership in the industry looks like and give input on what has lead successful members of the group to where they are and how we can maintain their success while also making resources available to others. Male attendees will gain insights into the amazing female talent within the industry and how diverse talent can be found and maintained from the perspective of these women.

Intended Audience

Invited to this roundtable are all women and non-binary identifying members of the industry predominantly, but we are open to attendees of other genders as well. The discussions are predominantly to be lead by women/NB folks and we ask for men to come with a mindset of listening and learning from them.
