The IGDA is pleased to announce the release of the first iteration of the IGDA's Online Harassment Resource. We hope it will be useful for those currently experiencing harassment, as well as for the friends, family and allies of those being impacted by harassment. Our thanks goes out to the many talented and insightful individuals who helped make it a reality. It is an evolving document that we hope to expand and refine over time.

Message from the Executive Director
We are game developers because of our intense passion for the medium. And we know that the general public who enjoys the games we create are likewise very passionate. At times with some individuals, the line between passion and obsession, between excitement and aggression can be easily crossed and in such moments, it's important for game developers to understand the risks associated with their craft and to be prepared.
With thousands of members in over 120 chapters worldwide, the IGDA functions as a key support mechanism for game developers and we encourage members and non-members alike to watch out for each other and support one another. By providing these resources, the IGDA will continue to serve as a key support mechanism and a place for game developers to get the information they need, find support from peers and colleagues and know they are not alone as they cope with these issues.
Executive Director, IGDA
