Come to GDC Europe and learn how to make the industry more diverse

Come to GDC Europe and learn how to make the industry more diverse

July 22, 2016 | By Staff

We're weeks away from this year's big GDC Europe conference in Germany, and organizers want to quickly let you know about a great panel on game industry diversity and accessibility that's taking place at the show. 

In a session titled simply "Who Needs Diversity? Everybody!", Threaks programmer Mena Jacobs, Kongregate exec Melinda Montano, University of Tampere game researcher Annakaisa Kultima, SAE Instititute Hamburg instructor Patrick Moechel and indie game developer Sos Sosowski will discuss why diversity in the game industry is so important -- and what everyone can do to make it more accessible.

It promises to be well worth attending, and those who do check it out can expect to walk away with useful takeaways about how to improve game industry diversity -- and the practical benefits of doing so.

You can find more details on this and all the other announced talks in the online GDC Europe 2016 Session Scheduler, where you can begin to build your conference week and later export it to the up-to-the-minute GDC Mobile App!

GDC Europe 2016 will also continue to offer business and matchmaking opportunities to all attendees with a developer-focused Expo Floor area and networking events throughout the show. For more information, please visit the GDC Europe website.

Gamasutra and GDC are sibling organizations under parent UBM Americas
