|Overview:||The push to create more inclusive workplaces is an admirable one, but it is failing because the real, challenging, and messy work is not being allowed to actually happen. Those who have accumulated the most power (executives, parent companies, etc.) have weaponized legal departments, ERGs, EAPs, among other tools, even co-opting the language of grassroots advocates to neuter the work of culture change and render it largely ineffective. In this talk, Anita Sarkeesian, Executive Director at Feminist Frequency, uses real-world examples from her decade-plus years of experience working with game developers, and highlights the foundational missing pieces to creating real systemic change that supports and uplifts all workers. She will propose counternarratives and recommendations for refocusing the conversation around actually empowering workers and creating a long-term sustainable workplace culture.|
