Session Name: A Great Saga Needs Different Heroes: Unlocking Diversity's Potential
Speaker(s): Sabrina Carmona
Company Name(s): King
Track / Format: Production & Team Management
Overview: Watch Sabrina Carmona, a gay, Latin, female Senior Producer at King's London Studio, talk about why diversity really matters in the gaming industry. She will share experiences and what has and has not worked for King so far, and what developers all need to be doing to move the needle on diversity. The stories and practical toolkit of strategies will relate to recruitment, individual development, team dynamics and organizational structure. Why should you care, you ask? Simply because the gaming audience continues to evolve and become more diverse, from Candy Crush to Fortnite, and everyone needs to be factoring this into the development process. To serve that increasingly diverse audience, you need to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk when it comes to diversity. The purpose of this talk is to discuss the practical aspects of enabling diverse teams in a fun and accessible way.
