GDC 2023: The Producer’s Role in Fostering Cultural Inclusion
Nominated as a top speaker for GDC 2021, Tina is delighted to be returning in person for the GDC 2023 Production Essentials Summit.
The games industry is increasing diverse and most teams are working hybrid and/or fully remote. How do Producers can leverage the best from everyone on the team? How do they ensure all diverse voices are heard, and that different opinions and concerns are shared? How can Producers ensure everyone is aligned on the mission if we all have different perspectives on what it is, and how to get there? And how can Producers develop psychological safety in teams where everyone can thrive?
