Research shows that ~50% of gamers are women and companies with diverse leadership are more profitable. With only 22% of game developers being female, there's never been a better time to cultivate change. The session will cover how to increase the female talent pool, nurture our current female developers, and support their growth into leadership roles via research-backed actions and programs. Changing the game starts with how we run our productions and studios. Come and hear how you can shift your development practices with an eye towards the future.
Attendees will leave with an understanding of a three-pronged approach to acquire, nurture, and grow female developers into leaders, with clear tools and actions to start necessary initiatives in their teams.
Each portion of the talk will include actionable items for all different levels of developers, with emphasis on studio and project leaders.
