60 seconds: Diversity & Inclusion at King

We wanted to give a short intro to our view of Diversity & Inclusion.

If you’re thinking about a professional future in the games industry, now you have the chance to join Activision, Blizzard, and King for GDC 2022.

About the Scholarship

This scholarship is open to all pursuing a college or university degree and considering a future in the games industry.

This scholarship will give you the opportunity to virtually attend the 2022 Game Developers Conference (GDC). By securing this scholarship you also will receive: passes to virtually attend GDC with us, exclusive networking, learning and development opportunities, and some ABK swag!

Joining us at GDC

GDC is the world’s largest and longest- running game industry event, featuring over 750 lectures, panels, tutorials and round- table discussions on a comprehensive selection of game making topics. The scholarship includes a Virtual All Access GDC Pass, meaning that our participants will get access to five days of expert- led education on key game development topics, as well as several special features throughout the week. Attendees have the opportunity to gain insight into the future of games, be inspired by new techniques, and discover creative new approaches.

Moreover, the scholarship includes events lined up exclusively for our participants! This includes networking opportunities and live Q&A sessions. You’ll get the chance to meet professional developers within the game industry. There are many different ways to create and develop games, and these networking opportunities are a chance not only for students to put questions directly to the people they meet, but also an opportunity for them to express who they are and exchange ideas with like- minded people. 

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
