This roundtable discussion will push the boundaries of how people perceive women game developers and the influence they have on representing culture. Participants will discuss the steps that must be taken as a games community to create diversity, inclusion, and equity both on-and-off the screen. This roundtable will serve as an educational opportunity to guide newcomers and veterans alike to practice inclusive frameworks—including tips on red flags in a company, equal pay, and preparing for difficult conversations.


Attendees will build tools for combating inequalities in the workplace both creatively and professionally.
