For International Women’s Day 2021 we highlight a few amazing women working in the game industry in Nova Scotia.
We asked them “What advice do you have for other women attempting to enter the game industry?”.
“Always keep pushing for women-led stories to be told, own your weirdness, and be confident in the decisions you make for yourself, your career and your department.”
“While gaming continues to be a tough industry for women, finding the right company with an environment where you can progress and thrive regardless of gender is really key. I can’t stress enough how much company culture matters.”
“If you think you aren’t qualified enough for a position, apply anyways. The worst thing that can happen is they say no, and sometimes a no can be its own kind of foot in the door for other future roles in a company.”
“Take a leap into the unknown, your brilliance and perspective will enhance the gaming industry, as women we think differently, and this is an awesome thing!”
How will you help forge a gender equal world?
