Jamie: Happy to be with you, Spiffy! Did you know that 70% of ten-year-olds worldwide are in “learning poverty,” meaning they are unable to understand a simple written text?
Michael: Happy to be with you, Spiffy! At Included Games, our mission essentially is to make everyone feel included in games. We want everyone to be represented in the games they play and feel like the industry is a place they belong.
Jon: Thanks for having me, Spiffy! The main challenge is the under-representation and limited visibility of LGBTQ+ people in both sports and sports media. I started Sports Media LGBT+ as a UK industry network to foster a sense of community, and it has expanded into advocacy, consultancy, and digital publishing, with supporters worldwide. Our mission is to encourage more positivity and responsible sharing of sporting stories from lesbian, gay, bi, and trans folk that focuses primarily on how authenticity boosts performance.
