SIGs: Allies

Welcome to the IGDA Allies SIG! 

The Allies SIG's mission is to support marginalized groups in the game industry by helping everyone be better allies for each other. We believe that anyone can be an ally to someone else, and we want to help foster a more supportive industry for all.
 

The Allies SIG's current goals and accomplishments include:

  • The Ally Skills Workshop (modified from the workshop created by the Ada Initiative: https://adainitiative.org/continue-our-work/workshops-and-training/)
  • Education around the unique challenges faced by underrepresented groups
  • Private discussion channels
  • A platform for Allies to create and launch their own initiatives, supporting inclusive environments for game developers and players
  • Identifying and celebrating games and media that demonstrate good allyship

 

All developers are invited and welcome to help us in providing a supportive and productive environment. We are looking for more allies to join us in our current projects and starting new initiatives.
