What We Do
We support and encourage the growth of our industry and all game developers within it. We provide resources and opportunities to grow careers and personal development, including soft skills and hard skills. We support our members and our partners so that they may grow sustainably and thrive. We work to push our industry forward to be a better place for all of us.
We cultivate opportunities for our members to connect with their peers to share knowledge and support. We empower ourselves when we share information and opinions, collectivize resources, and advocate on issues that concern us. We value the traditions and history of this community and every individual within it.
We advocate for developers so that their voices are heard. We help represent the interests of developers during important conversations that affect our industry and communities, so that individual developers and their concerns are considered and not overlooked by other organizations and press.
We value inclusion, equity, and diversity to empower us to be stronger, wiser and more relevant to the needs of all game developers. We believe that diversity of all kinds in game development leads to better and more successful products and companies, and happier and more successful game developers.
We strive to understand others’ perspectives, and share our perspectives and stories respectfully with others. Games and play are a major element in cultures around the world, enhancing learning and inspiring creativity and innovation. Games are an expressive medium of art and entertainment, and games and their creators deserve to be celebrated and respected. We should both use games as tools of empathy and treat others with empathy and respect.
