What is Game On?

Payload Studios is lucky to have a hugely talented and welcoming team but we understand that there is always more that can be done to foster diversity and inclusivity.

We aim to support all areas of diversity but we understand that different underrepresented groups face different challenges. While discussions around diversity in general are useful there is also a need for events focused on specific groups such as BAME and LGBQT+. We hope to reflect this in our future events and continue to use our platform to drive change within the industry. 

Our Diversity Initiative, Game On, encompasses all the steps we are taking to promote and support diversity, equality and inclusion. This includes our regular Game On events (panels, workshops and fireside chats) open to our Tentacle Zone Workspace residents and the wider games industry.

Since starting the events, we’ve grown our network and seen over 200 individuals attend, representing a cross-section of the industry.

Our events have focused on specific topics, such as unconscious bias, as well as amplifying the voices of diverse leaders, studio founders and some of the leading diversity organisations for our industry.
