Raise Your Game: How to Make Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Central to Your Games Business

Wednesday 13th July: 12.00 - 12.45Room 5

Businesses are more successful when they’re equal, diverse and inclusive places to work. But how can you make EDI essential to your games business, whether you’re working as a small team or in a major company?

In this session, we’ll bring together people who’ve sought to put EDI at the heart of the way their businesses work to give practical advice on driving diversity onwards. We’ll share tips on recruiting more diversely, on fostering an inclusive culture and broadening the content of games to foster a welcoming environment of all. We’ll also discuss how to make change stick, including how to set targets, change processes and turn incremental improvements into long term transformation.

Takeaway:

  • Discover the value of equality, diversity and inclusion to games businesses
  • Learn how companies have widened their recruitment pools, retained diverse talent and diversified the contents of their games to inspire change
  • Understand how to make EDI a natural part of your company’s long term thinking to embed change for the long term
