As one of our initiatives towards improving diversity, equity, and inclusion, Pipeworks Studios will share its company demographic statistics annually in hopes of raising awareness about the limited diversity within the tech and gaming industries. With time, we hope this will also show our year over year successes toward becoming a more diverse and inclusive company. We are not the first to take this step and hope this will encourage other gaming companies to examine their position in an industry in which women, people of color, and other identities historically have been underrepresented.
Globally, the gaming industry continues to be male led, with 61% of game developers identifying as male according to data from the International Game Developers Association. National demographics of game developers is more difficult to locate, but data collected by Zippia reports U.S. game developers identifying as 78% male and 14% female.
