UK Games Industry Census - understanding diversity in the UK games industry workforce
Thursday 13 February, 2019
UKIE helped commission a report of the industry to find out how diverse we were. Written by Dr. Mark Taylor of the University of Sheffield and funded via the Arts & Humanities Research Council, this independent analysis focuses on three main areas: the kinds of work that games industry workers do, their personal characteristics, and their backgrounds. By asking questions that could be compared against those from other sectors, national datasets or by digging into how multiple characteristics fit together, we were able to gain a very clear view of both areas where games can celebrate and where clear challenges lie. During this talk, we bring Mark together in a fireside chat with Joe Willis from Kurious Arts to dig deep into the report and answer some of the questions raised by the report.
