Video: Tips for building diverse teams

In this 2020 GDC Summer AMA, Revelation Interactive's Carl Varnado leads a discussion on representation in games and discusses how developers can create safe spaces for people who make games.

There's a number of challenges the game industry faces in working to make teams and companies more diverse. Diversity covers a number of interescting spheres, from race, to gender, to sexuality, to class, and beyond. What are some principles your team can use to help foster intersectional diversity?

At GDC Summer this year, Carl Varnado took the time to answer audience questions and lead a discussion on representation in games, and what developers can do to create safe spaces on the professional level. It's a discussion that shouldn't be missed, one you can watch in the video above or for free on the GDC YouTube channel.
