Director of Recruiting, 2K
This is your time ladies! I have been working in games for 10+ years, and the demand for talented women to join our industry is higher than ever right now. We all know that tech employers are actively looking for women to join their ranks, and many game developers are making diversity hiring a priority. Get the appropriate education, go after the internship, apply for the open roles, and pursue the career you want. Employers are actively looking for you right now, which I think is very encouraging.
Co-Founder of Smash Sisters
Being in the competitive Smash Bros. Melee community has introduced me to people I'd never have met otherwise. The diversity of the players is unparalleled: I've made friends of all ages from around the world, whom have unique backgrounds and stories. The breadth of these friendships has certainly shaped my understandings of people and thus, my ability to empathize.
