Description

Ctrl+Alt+Equal: Crafting a new narrative for gender in gaming

A discussion around the key strategies proposed by the Fair Game with regards to ensuring equal access, well-being, and support to groups who do not see themselves as “cis men”, while informing those who are unaware of the plight and points of exclusion of these groups.
