Editors Note: This year, for International Women's Day, we wanted to open our platform up to developers to share their experiences, their thoughts, and their messages to the community as we all reflect on the contributions women have made in the games industry. We're incredibly grateful these (very busy) women took the time out of their day to share this message with you all.
Over the last few years, the gaming industry has had a deliberate focus on how to create a culture of inclusivity. Not only within the games we make, but also within our own halls and with the people and companies we partner with. This focus has allowed me to reflect on my 22 years in the game industry and I am able to see how much I have grown and how much our industry has grown. I also realize that the role I have today, which is responsible for driving inclusivity, allows me to take ownership over something I didn’t have when I started working in gaming.
