Vault Recording: TBD
Audience Level: All
We increasingly discuss challenges and opportunities around specific diversity-focused topics such as creating an inclusive working environment and more diverse games, but we rarely discuss how such topics often intertwin creating whole new challenges (and opportunities).
Seniority vs Diverse hiring, Bootstrapping & Inclusivity, Saving costs while doing ground-breaking diverse innovation… These and more intersectional themes are discussed by Allan Cudicio, founder at Twin Drums who is currently working on the first African inspired fantasy online RPG: The Wagadu Chronicles.
Allan's insights have been collected through years of running a FLINTA majority team, with a large Black, PoC and Queer contingent, while working on a Black-centric queer-positive videogame which is in many ways threading exciting but uncharted territories.
Developer or Founder: you will be guided to be more aware about certain diversity topics that can intersect around you to create both opportunities and pitfalls.
Investor or Publisher: you will hear how certain intersectionalities translate into teams and pitches and how you need to think differently while evaluating them.
If you are a developer or an investor/publisher, this talk helps you connect the dots between increasingly discussed diversity topics and especially to think more about how they overlap and what to do about it in your role. No specialised knowledge is required to participate.
