As one of our initiatives towards improving diversity, equity, and inclusion, Pipeworks Studios will share its company demographic statistics annually in hopes of raising awareness about the limited diversity within the tech and gaming industries. With time, we hope this will also show our year over year successes toward becoming a more diverse and inclusive company. We are not the first to take this step and hope this will encourage other gaming companies to examine their position in an industry in which women, people of color, and other identities historically have been underprivileged underrepresented.
Below are the results of our 2020 demographic survey. Pipeworks provided an option for employees who did not want to participate or did not feel comfortable disclosing their identities, which has been recorded as “Prefer not to answer.” We had about 23% of our employee base that did not wish to participate in the survey. We hope that as we continue these surveys annually, our employees will feel more comfortable and inclined to participate.
