    (in partnership with Swedish Games Industry)

    Close to a Billion players world-wide play games made in Stockholm. Many cities around the world have government programs for games to promote growth and jobs.

    (in partnership with Swedish Games Industry)

    All kinds of people play games, but among those who make them, diversity is more limited. How can the trend of more women and various backgrounds in the games industry be supported? What can companies do on their own in terms of equal career opportunities and the design of their games? How do we attract students to the game educations and talent from other industries? And, most importantly, how can the image of games as a habitat for only white men be changed?

    Panelists: Susana Meza Graham - Paradox Interactive, Jenny Brusk - Skövde College, Pernilla Alexandersson - Add Gender.
    Moderated by: Per Strömbäck - Swedish Games Industry
