At Payload Studios, we have taken some time to reflect on how we can voice our wholehearted support for the Black Lives Matter movement with more than just words. Building on our existing diversity platform and start-up community, we see an opportunity to enact real, positive change in the games industry.
As a group, and as individuals, we continue to educate ourselves on long-term actions we must take to fight racism. Firstly we have made a donation to the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust, but there is much more we must do to represent Black communities within our team and industry. We are having discussions on how we can do this internally and through our programme of events and will announce our plans soon.
For now, please contact Nisha via firstname.lastname@example.org if you are a Black game developer/founder and want to access free resources such as mentoring, business advice or contacts within our networks. We would love to help.
