|Overview:||According to latest UKIE census on diversity, representation of neurodiversity is strong within the game industry. With about 18% self-identifying as neurodivergent, it is more than in the general population. But being too often invisible and misunderstood, the industry is missing a strong opportunity to leverage the exceptional talents and skills behind it. At Ubisoft, both employees and employer launched a dual and complementary initiative on Neurodiversity. This lecture will be about their journey and learnings on unlocking the power of neurodiversity in game development.|
