We've heard many stories this year about how abuse can unfortunately creep into the game industry. And while it's easy to focus on the actions of individuals, who is responsible for the cultures that allows those individuals to thrive?

Double Loop Games CEO Emily Greer has been thinking about this particular problem lately. So much so that she went and gave a talk at GDC Summer about her experiences and insight about how company leaders can prevent abuse before it even happens. Greer's talk draws on her experience running Kongregate as well as the steps she took when founding Double Loop Games.

It's an outstanding talk, one you can watch in the video above or for free 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
