Alice joined Autistica in November 2021 to connect incredible companies with the UK's leading autism research and campaigning charity, to enable all autistic people to live happy, healthy and long lives. Alice leads on Autistica Play, the initiative that supports the UK games industry to embrace neurodiversity and inclusivity in the workplace and beyond.
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.

I’ve felt a big passion here at Develop!
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.
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.
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 fantastic to have such an event that provides this opportunity for all the game devs, indie devs and other organisations to get together to showcase what they do, meet and interact.
There’s really something for everyone at Develop and the experience of being around like-minded people is really useful.
If you really want to have a good interface with the British game developer community then this is the place to come.
I’ve been to every single Develop in the last 12 years. One thing you get here is networking - you will meet the most amazing individuals in the video games industry.
There’s something creative about Brighton, so it’s the perfect place to have the conference.
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 are many ways you can be part of Develop:Brighton - including taking a booth in the Expo or choosing one of the many sponsorship opporunities during the event or at the Star Awards.Contact us now!
