About this course:

According to reports, in 2019, only 5 % of professional video gamers were women, despite nearly half of gamers worldwide being female. Since then, the percentage of professional players has climbed to 8 percent (in 2022), which is a 60% increase in just three years. And while the ratio of men to women playing video games professionally is still skewed compared to the ratio of amateurs, the growth reflects the increasing diversity in esports and a challenge to the sexist attitudes and behaviors that are prevalent in the video game world. Join us to hear from women involved in the gaming and esports industries. Find out what the industry is like, how they are being accepted as a female in a male dominated sector, and what they like most about what they do. You’ll also have a chance to ask questions of our panel.
