Overview: This is a watershed moment in talking about gender-based harm - harassment, abuse, and sexism - in games. We have a unique opportunity right now to provide productive and forward thinking tools and structures that will help with healing some of the harm that has occurred, building new approaches to dealing with harm, and finally making strides towards holding people and institutions accountable in meaningful ways. Building on our shared expertise in advocating for systems change, mental health, addressing harassment, and inclusive policy and procedure, the presenters will provide attendees with an overview of the concepts and vocabulary used in this new paradigm, followed by a structured roundtable conversation exploring the best strategies for moving forward with this approach.This lecture is paired with a 60-minute roundtable that will occur back-to-back. Attendees of the lecture are encouraged to attend the roundtable to discuss lecture content.
