If systemic equality were easily dismantled in society, it would probably not be classifiable as systemic. However in the game industry, leaders like Trinidad Hermida have refused to back down from the challenge of building a more equitable world.

In her GDC Summer talk, Hermida talks directly to game industry leaders and those who aspire to their position. Her argument is that systemic inequality, no matter if it's across lines of race, gender, sexuality, or beyond, can be addressed in the hiring process, in the workplace, and beyond. 

It's a worthwhile talk, one you can watch for free up above or on the GDC YouTube channel.

About the GDC Vault

In addition to this presentation, the GDC Vault and its accompanying YouTube channel offers numerous other free videos, audio recordings, and slides from many of the recent Game Developers Conference events, and the service offers even more members-only content for GDC Vault subscribers.

Those who purchased All Access passes to recent events like GDC or VRDC already have full access to GDC Vault, and interested parties can apply for the individual subscription via a GDC Vault subscription page. Group subscriptions are also available: game-related schools and development studios who sign up for GDC Vault Studio Subscriptions can receive access for their entire office or company by contacting staff via the GDC Vault group subscription page
