“nDreams continues to support the Raise The Game Pledge and is proud to be a partner for the industry census,” said Tamsin O’Luanaigh, Chief People Officer at nDreams. “The learnings from this data will be invaluable, enabling the industry to reach a consensus on key areas of focus and lead to more tangible actions.

A representative for Splash Damage added “We believe that teams create the best work when they have a range of perspectives and experiences to draw from. Seizing moments like this to raise awareness and understand where we stand with issues of diversity and inclusion is essential, and will enrich our industry and the games we create. We are proud to be partners of Ukie’s UK Games Industry Census and the critical work they are doing for our industry.”
"This second census is a great continual point to give us some correlations to the previous census,” said Kish Hirani, President of BAME in Games. “It’s important we get everyone a better idea of how our industry is composed of now, how it is changing, and how we can make sure we continue to collectively grow and thrive
