So much has changed in the world and in the industry over the past two years, it’s prime time to revisit the industry’s visions and values and how we can all do better going forward.

The Industry Visions & Values track is all about revisiting and redefining our values as an industry. We are committed to creating a space for discussion as it regards industry culture and how we can be doing better, whether that be in mental health matters, cultural representation or creating greater inclusivity. The conversations will cover everything from opportunities for gender-marginalised developers, gaming for your health and how you can create positive company culture within your own business.
