Gamecity Impulse: Diversity Management in the Games Industry
On August 12, 2021, two industry experts from Hamburg and San Francisco joined us to discuss about Diversity Management in the Games Industry. We had an insightful and interesting panel discussion with Trinidad Hermida (Head of Diversity and Inclusion at Niantic) and Maurice Hagelstein (Co-Founder and Game Director at Tiny Roar). Games journalist, researcher and developer Nina Kiel moderated the discussion.
What can games companies do to actively contribute to strengthen equality, diversity and inclusion in the industry and in games? And what challenges do studios, publishers and other games businesses - from large corporations to small indies - face in this field?
These and more questions were discussed by our panel on August 12. Trinidad and Maurice gave insight into diversity management, shared their experiences and challenges as well as pracitical advice and answered questions from the audience.
This event was the second issue of our online event series Gamecity Impulse which deals with questions of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion with regard to the games industry and gaming culture.
