The women of CTG promise to stand up for ourselves and lift others in need to help them shine.
International Women’s Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women.
2022's theme is ‘Break the Bias’. It’s a call to action to create a gender equal world, free of bias, stereotypes and discrimination. A world that's diverse, equitable, and inclusive. A world where difference is valued and celebrated.
The Australian games industry continues to grow in more ways than revenue. According to IGEA, employment has grown by over 50% since 2016 to 1,327 full-time workers in the industry. 23% of employees are (cisgender) female while 10% are transgender, non-binary, or gender diverse – 2021 saw a vast improvement in gender diversity across the workforce.
Despite this rise in gender diversity, CTG recognises that bias can make it difficult for women to move ahead in our industry and just knowing that bias exists isn’t enough. We aim to level the playing field by:
- Challenging the industry ‘norms’
- Championing equity
- Having empathy and compassion
- Recognising our own privileges
- Supporting and lifting each other up
Our Unity Developer, Gabriella Wilson has been a pivotal team member for almost 4 years. Rising through the developer ranks and one of our most passionate advocates for environmental change, she’s excited to be part of an inclusive and empowering movement:
“I am so proud to be part of a company who strives to make a difference with the games that we create, but more importantly, how we are breaking the bias by highlighting the epic cis, transgender, minority, and non-binary women in the games industry.
Appreciating the women of Chaos Theory Games, to all from the past, present and future - you are more than enough!”
In honour of the women struggling in the Ukraine war, the women of CTG decided to donate $250 to the Women for Women International charity. This donation will help Women for Women respond quickly to those impacted by the war through their Conflict Response Fund. They're working local partners, combined with decades of experience using a woman-centred holistic approach to provide services such us:
- Safe spaces for women to gather and connect
- Trauma-informed care and counselling
- Interventions to support survivors of sexual violence
All team members want to celebrate the beautiful, brave, and bold women that make Chaos Theory an incredible place to work - today and every day!
The women of CTG are setting examples for the next generation of game developers, artists, and marketers to look up and aspire to, and we're proud to have all their voices contributing to how we work and the work we do.
