“Harder. Better. Faster. Stronger. – Self-Care Tips for Diverse Peeps”
Emilie Poissenot, Wren Brier, Snow McNally, Tanya DePass & Dameyon Bonson
As part of an underrepresented group in the games industry, our careers are harder than the norm. Our actions and words may be used as a blanket representation of our whole group. The knowledge of biases against us can lead to increased self-doubt and distrust of our coworkers. All these experiences take their toll on our well-being. How can we get better at recognizing these side-effects and alleviating them faster? The panelists discuss experiences and tips that have helped them get stronger to broaden your own set of tools for similar situations.
