United in Diversity

I HAVE A BIAS, YOU HAVE A BIAS, LET'S FIND THEM.

Our Mission: Address Systemic Issues

Diversity is good for business.

United in Diversity is the expansion of the CGA's long standing research, outreach and events focused on women in games. Over the past decade, CGA has directly spent over $500,000 making this program one of the best funded diversity related initiatives in the games industry. Launched in 2017, United in Diversity is designed to provide original research and thought leadership to support organizations, companies and individuals in creating a culture that harnesses the productivity and revenue benefits of a diverse workforce while avoiding the negative reproductions which often plague well meaning diversity programs.

United in Diversity aims to take your conversations to the next level by addressing systemic structural and cultural deficiencies which prove toxic to symptom focused diversity programs championed by slick marketing videos with rainbow colored faces holding rainbow flags.

United in Diversity is a joint partnership between: CGA, IGDA Foundation, Contagious Creativity, Open Gaming Alliance, WIGeh (Women in Games Vancouver), Leadership for Diversity, WIGI (Women in Games International), DigiBC (British Columbia's Interactive and Digital Media), Games Business Review, GamesBeat, Amazon, Facebook and IBM.

United in Diversity's 2018 Think Tank Exercises



While our primary goal is to address the hidden, often embarassing and unknown bias holding busines and the industry as a whole back, we additionally aim to build upon the hard work of those who have come before us to take the discussion of sexism, racism, heterosexism, and genderism to the next level.

In 2018, join us for a deep dive into some of the most controversial festering topics around diversity in the games industry.
