"At Male-Dominated Events, It Can Go In Different Directions. Quiet Voices Can Get Lost."
"It was good to hear from women in games. To see how they got their start and what they were working on." —Damola Thompson, QA Engineer, 3D Artist
Instigating change comes at a high cost.
And I hope we can all agree that when it comes to instigating a more inclusive and diverse workplace, diversity in thought and leadership leads to a stellar ROI.
As Alice says in the video above, "At male-dominated events, it can go in different directions, and quiet voices can get lost. Tonight is a space where that didn't happen so much, and everyone was able to say what they wanted. I think you should definitely come to a PowerToFly event." - Alice Parsons, Illustrator.

I sat in front of my CEO to discuss several complaints of racism. I was new to my role as a Culture Director. I was nervous about his reaction to the complaints. But I also knew he strongly supported developing this new department; I knew that he would take the right steps. So I was shocked when I heard him say sheepishly, "I don't know, Noelle...all of this stuff about racism. I just don't see it. I don't even see color. I'm pretty much color blind."
Living in the midst of a pandemic has brought about a whole host of changes and challenges for workplaces and employees. One of the most notable? Virtual interviewing. With most on-site interviews on hold for the foreseeable future, it's important that you be prepared to make a great first impression—virtually.
