A report by Ukie and the University of York, backed by Women in Games, analysing the experiences of people from the games sector directly or indirectly engaged in the organisation of industry events through 22 in-depth interviews. 

·       Benefits of informal events could be rendered inaccessible by environments that cause discomfort or exclusionary practices.

·       Organisations dedicated to supporting marginalised groups in the games industry organise inclusive events comparatively effectively.

·       Consider developing your own code of conduct, running events at different times of the day or week and improving accessibility through live streaming.
