The rapid growth of the computer games market and industry has taken the education sector as well as the labour market by surprise. The gender distribution among students and workers, however, doesn't correspond with that of the population, nor with that of the players. This raises many questions: • What will the consequences of this distortion be? • Are we missing a great part of the potential game developers? • How does the Nordic games development respond to the recruiting challenges of the future? • Which attitudes promote diversity within the business? • What is the role of the university gaming schools? These issues are in focus during a seminar at Hanaholmen/Hanasaari, the Swedish-Finnish Culture Centre, Finland on April 2, 2014.
