Women in Games is proud to be part of Games Careers Week 26 March to 2nd April 2021, the free online festival for inspiring people from every background to discover prospects in one of the UK’s most exciting careers.
Games Careers Week is organised and funded by the charity the BGI and nonprofits Grads in Games and Into Games. The week is trying to tackle low awareness of games career opportunities in the British public, especially amongst diverse groups, and low diversity in the UK games workforce through a pan-industry public education campaign. Games Careers Week is packed with events aimed at reaching millions of parents, learners, teachers and job-seekers. Designed to inspire and inform diverse people about career opportunities available within the games industry, the week will showcase scores of online events for all ages and levels of expertise.
Women in Games are releasing recordings from their recent Careers and Networking Expo and will also make available, for the first-time, further resources from the Women in Games Global Conference 2020, which includes a range of insightful career stories from some incredible women within the video games industry: such as Tabitha Hayes, CMO at Star Stable Entertainment – Victoria Prentice when she was at Creative Assembly – Melissa Chaplin, Head of Strategy at Game If You Are and Sandra Castro Colombian journalist, Master in Political Communication.
Also join members of the Women in Games team for a Q & A about how to get into the games industry and discussion into their experiences on Wednesday 31st March at 6pm. https://discord.gg/4HpQuGRtRy
