The Credit Bureau - A Thing That Might Matter To You Today
At Metatopia, a group of us launched The Credit Bureau, an initiative to support and advocate for women and non-binary folks who verb games. Play, design, write, copyedit, admire - we don't care what the verb is.
With Gen Con fast approaching, it seems like a good time to invite people to join us. If you're interested drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What we do -
* form care-teams for designers/industry pros who are at a systemic, socially reinforced disadvantage.
* support each other at industry events and gatherings
What we don't do -
* arbitrate what qualifies as "lady" or "non-binary trans". if you self-identify as either, you're welcome to join us and the invitation includes you. Yes, that includes various flavors of genderqueer and genderfluid. Look, we don't care, as long as you join us in good faith and honor the fact that we are specifically looking to create a women and non-binary space.
* check your credentials at the door or making you justify your existence. In fact, we will be making it clear to you how very valued you are, instead of you telling us why we should value you.
Yes, we really mean that if you are a woman creator, contributor, den mother, editor, tweaker, retailer, verber of any sort of games in any form, we'd like you to join us.
To express interest, email us at IGMCRHB@gmail.com.(it's an acronym that we'll explain later.)
