Founder & CEO, Girls Make Games
Working with young girls is endlessly inspiring. They look at everything, including games, and see limitless potential. Their energy is infectious. It pushes me to do more, and to do better. When parents write to us and share how attending a Girls Make Games workshop has raised their daughter's confidence, it's hard not to keep on doing the work. Every girl who ever wanted to make a game should have the confidence and the opportunity to make one.
Director of Recruiting, 2K
This is your time ladies! I have been working in games for 10+ years, and the demand for talented women to join our industry is higher than ever right now. We all know that tech employers are actively looking for women to join their ranks, and many game developers are making diversity hiring a priority. Get the appropriate education, go after the internship, apply for the open roles, and pursue the career you want. Employers are actively looking for you right now, which I think is very encouraging.
Partner Marketing Specialist, 2K
Work hard, keep learning, and follow your gut. Don't be afraid to reach out to other women, find mentors, and ask questions. I don't think I would have pursued this career if I hadn't reached out to a few key women in life and I'm so grateful to have badass mentors continually inspiring and pushing me to be my best.
