The Inaugural Feminists in Games Workshop

Well, for those of you that made it last weekend, we had a great, productive, thought provoking time. Some fun was had too, but really we got down to the nitty gritty of how we are going to make change, and we even came up with a few ideas of where and how to start. Over the course of the next few days I am going to post videos of the talks given at the workshop, and I am also going to invite attendees/participants/observers to send me your impressions of the weekend to post.

In the meantime, here is a video of the talk by Profs. Suzanne de Castell and Jennifer Jenson. This was the FiG welcome talk, and a primer about how we might bring a feminist perspective to our work in the games industry (and to our work in a broader sense). Enjoy! Take notes! (also, wear headphones for the Q&A because it’s a little hard to hear).
