According to the latest reports only 19% of the creative industry workforce is female. This is compared to the UK workforce average of 45%. Women especially tend to be underrepresented in more technical roles where the figure is closer to 9%.
We want to redress this balance. We want women working in the media industry. We want female game makers and film-makers. We want to see the stories they will tell and the characters they will represent and the products they will create.
At ELAM we are doing our part. We are launching our Games Design courses and Film & Television Productions courses in September 2017 as part of our new Digital Media curriculum.
If you are a female gamer or a female film or television enthusiast, or if you know anyone who is, get on board and become part of our team.
