Plus, please, some time go to GDC and count the women in the "I want a job" section, then count the women in the "I have a job" section.
It's a bit shocking.
Why not check out the amount of agism in the IT industry then(not sure if it was mentioned I only skimmed the thread), I've seen exceptionally capable people who are excellent in their field be canned because they hit the "big 50" and some pretentious douche-nozzle decided that they were too old to "know what they were talking about" replacing them with someone 30 years their junior, who had no clue. And seen $100m projects fail and suffer because of it. I know two people who've filed lawsuits against the company they worked for, and said companies are under investigation not only by the labor board but two different HRC's.
