Women in Games publishes guide with aims of advancing gender equality

Free booklet designed for those who are "interested in engaging with, and advancing wider diversity and inclusion"

Women in Games has released a new booklet with eyes to tackle underrepresentation in the games industry, particularly opportunities for women.

Titled 'Building a Fair Playing Field', the guide seeks to "address wide scale issues of gender inequality," as well as "highlight the role of leadership in achieving fairness," and "encourage and enable change."

It contains 150 pages of "information, inspiration, resources, first-hand accounts, case studies, recommendations and more," for those "interested in engaging with, and advancing, gender equality and wider diversity and inclusion."

The guide is free to download via the Women in Games website.

"The world has changed since the 2018 publication of the first Women in Games Guide," said Women in Games CEO and guide co-author Marie-Claire Isaaman. "Covid-19 and its continuing aftermath has brought uncertainties, but this has also brought huge opportunities for driving positive change.

"Global working practices, and particularly the games industries themselves, are being transformed, and this Guide sets out to bring new impetus for gender equality and fairness."
