The Next Generation Skills Academy is carrying out a survey looking at diversity and equality within the games industry. They’re looking for women working in the games sector to help by filling in a survey to help identify and highlight the challenges women face in this area of the creative industries.
The information and ideas gathered from your responses will be used to help the NGSA design a comprehensive report which will be subject of discussions involving employers, educators and employees/freelancers to discuss ways to ensure that all women have the opportunity to achieve their potential in Games.
The Academy will also be using the content of your responses to design a series of ‘audience-focused’ regional career development workshops. These will take place late January/early February 2015.
If you would also be prepared to be telephone interviewed by a researcher, please answer ‘Yes’ to the final question and complete contact details. We hope to produce a representative group of (anonymous) case studies which will be of practical value to employers wishing to attract, recruit and retain women in all areas of their business.
