Cinzia Musio is an Operations Project Manager at London-based video games studio, Splash Damage (Dirty Bomb, Gears 5, Gears Tactics, Halo: MCC) where she drives the review and implementation of business processes to ensure they are both efficient and inclusive. Alongside her role, Cinzia has a passion for training and development. She currently leads the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Board at Splash Damage where she focuses on driving the EDI strategy, as well as training and awareness initiatives.
This year's UKIE census has shown how we need to start working with Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) at the forefront of our internal policies and hiring. We know it's an emergency. Cinzia will walk you through the journey she took transforming Splash Damage's studio culture to become more diverse and inclusive: From Employee Resource Groups, Talks organised in the studio and even the staff Halloween Party! You'll learn the little steps required not only to get buy-in at all levels, but to make EDI a vital part of your studio's day to day. You'll leave this session with knowledge on how to adapt this within your own studios and ways to make your underrepresented employees feel even more welcome and included.

We are so lucky to have Develop here in the UK. It’s a unique event where you can come and discover new things with people who care passionately about video games. It’s a sea full of new ideas.
I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
There really is a huge mix of people at Develop - loads of peers that you can learn from and the perfect blend of every element of game development as well.
Building games is hard and it’s taxing physically, mentally and emotionally. So being around a community that understands that is great – there’s a comraderie here.
It’s really nice to see some of the younger people in our studio come to Develop, interact with other people in the dev community and make new contacts. I think it’s really important to learn from other people.
Develop:Brighton’s a great conference. It’s got a spread of people from all parts of the games industry talking about such a wide range of topics.
Develop is a very important place – it’s one of the few developer focussed conferences we have in Europe and that makes it very valuable.
By coming to Develop what you get is the opportunity to network like you can’t in any other situation. Everyone knows everyone and it’s such a wonderful community feel.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
Develop always gets put in the diary. There are many reasons to be here, not just the talks, but the networking, people exchanging ideas about where the industry is right now and where it’s going to. It’s pretty essential to be here I think.
