What's Save Point? It is a discord channel that hosts a monthly event for all folks of under-represented genders who are working in the games industry! There are lots of awesome spaces for cis-males who work in games, but almost none for folks of under-represented genders to hang-out together, which makes this event quite special.

At Game Changers, we take polls every episode on topics related to the panel discussion. Some of the insights are startling!


Did you know...



While our panelists cite negotiating job offers as a positive ('I respect a candidate who negotiates their offer more'), the vast majority of our audience did not try to negotiate. None of our audience asked for any significant changes to their offer! 


The top reason for making a big career move is not the lack of opportunities, but rather: uncertainty, the need to build up a new support base, and family commitments. Indeed, one of our panelists cited the key difference between her career trajectory and those of other talented women game designers she knew was that her family was willing to 'do what it took' to support her career - including moving across countries multiple times with young children.
