Gameloft Montreal, a leading game developer and publisher established as one of the top innovators in its field since 2000, is proud to introduce a new series of talks about diversity and inclusivity in partnership with Pixelles. Several experts will look at various social topics related to our industry, in order to open the discussion and allow Gameloft Montreal to become more inclusive in the studio and in games!

Friendship Garden presented about Inclusive Character Design as one of the speakers on February 11th, 2021. You can also read about it on Pixelle’s website.¬†

Learn about creating authentic, diverse characters [in games] that are not stereotypes. This online presentation discusses:

  • how stereotypes are perpetuated through their use in the media
  • exercises to analyze characters for good representation
  • how active and engaged listening is the best tool for dismantling stereotypes
  • processes and questions that attendees can equip themselves with to better combat harmful socialized beliefs and keep them out of their games

This virtual talk, presented in English, is open to everyone to everyone of all genders and backgrounds. We expect all attendees to follow the Pixelles safer space policy.
