Tech industries, including the video game industry, are predominantly composed of cis, white, male individuals. Thanks to the momentum of social movements such as #MeToo (2017), #BlackLivesMatter (2020), and #StopAsianHate (2020-21), efforts to address systemic issues are increasing, but there's still plenty of work to be done. It's absolutely critical to keep these conversations going. As industry professionals with firsthand experience existing as diverse individuals in a homogeneously dominated space, this group aims to lead these vital discussions in order to facilitate lasting change.


Attendees will gain a better understanding of the issues facing diverse members of the game audio field. They'll gain a heightened awareness of their own unconscious bias and how to mitigate them when interacting with diverse individuals.

Intended Audience

This talk is appropriate for individuals who identify as diverse and allies who are interested in creating a more inclusive game industry.
