  • About Us

    profile 02Hello. We are Diversi, a collective force working for greater diversity within the gaming sphere. By enabling people from game companies, educational institutions  and gaming communities to encourage and support each other’s diversity efforts, we strive to promote an inclusive culture where everyone can feel welcome.

    When we talk about diversity, we refer to gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age, body and function diversity.

    Diversi is a non-profit organisation and we have a large network that includes the vast majority of Sweden’s AAA developers, indies, industry organisations such as Swedish Games Industry and Association of Swedish Game Developers, university and vocational school programmes, e-sports and community organisations. Our network also fans out internationally.

  • Philosophy

    When we talk about diversity, we refer to gender, sexuality, ethnicity, age, body and function diversity.

    When we talk about the need for more diversity in games, game companies, game community and educational institutions, we refer to a need for both ‘quantitative’ and ‘qualitative’ diversity.

    In other words, we have a twofold wish: to see people of different genders, sexualities and ethnicities, and those with disabilities represented in games, game companies, game communities and in education; and to see that these people are not depicted or treated as (stereotypical) representatives of those groups.

    A more qualitative diversity means instilling a mindset where stereotypical assumptions make way for a practice of openness – not just by bolstering numbers, but by influencing the way we engage with one another across the entire industry.

    Despite our very similar biological makeup, each one of us is unique and individuals shouldn’t be seen as representatives for a social group, but rather should be free to be themselves – with all the complexities and depth that come with being human, across all facets of the gaming sphere.
