Overview: Gamers cover a wonderful and diverse range of humanity, and their CMs need to reflect that diversity too. This will be a discussion featuring diverse community managers who all work or have previously worked in gaming. The speakers will talk about how they do their work and what they think are ways to improve the numbers. Topics covered by the speakers include: how they do their jobs as community managers, how to bring your full-self to work, how to get qualified candidates successfully through theinterview pipeline, and how to make sure diverse candidates want to stay once they've joined your team.
