Men As Allies: Open Your Eyes & Become An Agent of Change
This event is aimed at opening the eyes of men working in the industry to the huge challenges and obstacles facing women, and equipping them with the tools and understanding they need to become effective allies, driving positive change within the industry. This isn’t just about raising awareness; it’s about encouraging and empowering men to take action. We’ll provide attendees with knowledge, practical tools and resources to implement the learnings of the session into their daily lives, both professionally and personally.

The session will be led by our CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman and our Co-Director and Director of Ambassadors Gemma Johnson-Brown, in conversation with:

  • Alan Dixon, Principal Recruiter, Amiqus
  • Thom Haley, Lecturer in Games Design & Development – Games, Norwich University of the Arts
  • Joe Binnion, Chief People and Culture Officer Keywords Studios
  • John Ozimek, Director/Co-Founder, Big Games Machine

This event is free to attend. We would love for you to join us – and to bring along colleagues who may be interested in how they can support women by becoming allies.
