According to Louise O’Connor, Executive Producer, Rare, they hope to increase participation of women in the gaming industry through their mentoring initiative.

Despite efforts by Women in Games and other organizations advocating for gender equity in the industry, it continues to face gender imbalance. Reports claim that women candidates represent only 24% of the total workforce.
