Inspiring Diversity

The VGA is open to any educational organisation that wants to connecting their young people to the vast array of opportunities the games indusrty provides however, we are especially interested in those that can help make the games indusrty a more diverse sector.

While almost 100% of young people play videogames, only 22% of the indusrty is female and only, 4% are from an ethinic minority. This needs to change.

The VGA is commited to helping create a more representative indusrty by working clsoely with youth organsiations that specifically work with young women, BAME, or those from disadvantaged areas.

We hope that by showcasing better career options at an earlier age, we can ensure the future of the games sector is bright, diverse and inclusive.
