A new report from the International Game Developers Association has taken a close look at pay discrepancies for women and workers of colour.
The Developer Satisfaction Survey 2014 & 2015 found that 10% of men in the games industry earn more than $150,000 a year, with only 3% of women in the industry earning as much.
However, 19% of women reported that they earned between $50,000 and $75,000, while only 15% of men reported that they were earning the same.
Men were also found to be working in technical roles twice as much as women.
Only 3% of workers of colour were found to be in senior management roles, compared to 23% of white respondents.
Racial disparity was also shown in salaries. 26% of workers of colour said they earned less than $15,000 per year, while just 17% of white workers reported salaries below this amount.
81% of freelance workers of colour reported earnings of less than $40,000 per year, while 66% of white freelance workers reported the same.
18% of white freelancers said they were making around $75,000 per year, while just 3% of freelancers of colour earned the same.
A disparity in perception of inequality was also found. Data showed 39% of men witnessing inequality towards others, but only 26% experiencing it directly. This compares with 59% of women who reported they had witnessed inequality, and 67% who had experienced it directly.
