BioWare - International Women's Day
Today is the International Women's Day. Bioware did decide to make a blog entry about this. Bioware's David Hulegaard talked to a few female Bioware employees about what women can do if they want to work in the game industry.
Advice from Karin Weekes:
Constantly hone your skills and keep being really good at what you do-your craft is more important than anything else. Work to be a good communicator and listener. Connect with other women in the industry for support and problem solving. If game development is your passion, you deserve to be here, and there is a place for you. If someone tells you otherwise, they're wrong.
Melanie Faulknor's advice:
I work with some of the most talented people in the industry, and that includes women who are Level Designers, Cinematic Designers, Directors, Editors, Writers, Programmers, and Producers. Tons of our fans are women too. Women in the industry provide a very valuable perspective, so don't let anything stop you from pursuing a career in games if it's something you love.
