We have been deeply affected by the testimony of everyone who has come forward with details about pervasive sexism, sexual harassment and abuse, and abuse of labor in the games industry this week. In response, we have begun to compile this list of resources.
MissionThe IGDA Women in Games (WIG) Special Interest Group (SIG) was formed to create a positive impact on the game industry with respect to gender balance in the workplace and the marketplace. The IGDA WIGSIG offers community, resources and opportunities to those already in the games industry, as well as people seeking to break into the business.
Be a part of the Women in Games community. Your involvement in our community brings us closer to the goal of building greater awareness amongst our peers and colleagues of relevant programs, issues and opportunities that serve to help diversify the state of game development.
