The diversity deficit in the game industry is staggering. Data shows while 80% of black teens in the U.S. play video games only 2% of game developers around the globe are black.
At Game Wizards we want to inspire the next generation of game developers by partnering with game studios to ensure diversity and inclusion goals are met with talent who are prepared to make amazing game play experiences.
We want to ensure communities of color have career futures in the growing video game industry.
