Join BAME in Games as they collaborate on a fun event with Flatiron School

Flatiron School x BAME in Games

The aim of these monthly meetups is to foster a space for BAME (Black Asian Minority Ethnic) developers working or wanting to work in Games, Mobile, VR, AR, eSports, VFX, animation and related entertainment industries.

We encourage discussion and collaboration to nurture talent from minority groups and promote the benefits of a diverse workforce. Our monthly meetup is meant to be a casual event and offers an opportunity for everyone to expand their networks and meet at exciting locations linked with video game development. New faces are always welcome, whether you are a professional, student or hobbyist.
