PushFar and Limit Break team up to improve diversity in gaming industry

PushFar and Limit Break team up to improve diversity in gaming industry
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

PushFar, a mentoring and career progression platform, has partnered with Limit Break, a mentorship program in the games industry, to help improve diversity, inclusion and equality.

Limit Break is using PushFar’s platform to offer a mentorship program for underrepresented people working in the UK gaming industry. Recent figures show that 70% of people working in the gaming industry are male, compared to 28% female and 2% non-binary workers, and that 10% of people are Black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME).

Founder Anisa Sanusi established Limit Break in 2019 when she found it challenging to find a mentor in the gaming industry. She recognised the value of guidance and role models for underrepresented genders, LGBQT+ and people of colour, with representation in the workforce significantly below the national average of those in work.

Limit Break turned to Pushfar for a solution because the popularity of the mentoring program meant it was time consuming and required scaling. PushFar set up an accessible and intuitive platform, making it easy to match members based on their specific profiles, and allowing the program to have international reach. The platform also enables people to connect with people from specific backgrounds through a self-matching feature. Limit Break now has up to 700 people on their mentoring program, and has seen an increase in member retention.

Ed Johnson, CEO and Founder of PushFar, said: “Having a mentoring relationship is often noted as being one of the most beneficial things you can do for career development. Employees feel motivated and supported when they see senior leaders with whom they can relate. Limit Break has recognised the advantages mentoring can bring to their industry, and taken an active role in addressing diversity and inclusion issues through it. We’re delighted to be part of this solution and hope that our platform will help more people from under-represented groups join the games industry”.

Anisa Sanusi, Founder of Limit Break, said: “Actively mentoring candidates enables us to facilitate connections for a young workforce to those with experience. We want to help to keep the games industry rich with diverse talent and passion, and hope that our program will enable more people from under-represented groups to join the industry. Creating a mentorship program can be a time consuming and complicated task, but by using PushFar we’ve been able to make it simple and easy for everyone involved.”

It’s Official! SoftGamings and Golden Hero Collaboration Is Underway
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

For SoftGamings, there are never enough good-quality game providers in its network, and the newest addition of Golden Hero is a testament to that fact.

Golden Hero is an Isle-of-Man-based operator known for its production and development of video slots and pachislos, a special series of slots based on Japanese pachinko games. The brand’s popularity in Japan and other Asian markets comes from its successful games and partnerships with the industry giants such as JTG. This success prompted it to seek a reliable aggregation platform to expand its reach beyond the existing markets, and SoftGamings was a natural choice.

All of Golden Hero’s games are created using the latest HTML5 technology, which focuses on mobile casino gaming. Even though its portfolio is not grandiose in number, the quality of the games it offers is undeniable. One of its most successful titles is the Battle Dwarf pachislo, voted the 2019 Game of the Year at Slotcatalog.com. Other player-favourites include Jewel Race, Hawaiian Dream, and many more.

Golden Hero is a game provider licensed by the Malta Gaming Authority and certified by SIQ, which guarantees the fairness and safety of its games. In addition, the Gamesys Group, a company that owns Golden Hero, has recently been acquired by Bally’s Corporation, making Golden Hero a part of one of the world’s largest casino corporations.

Here’s what Irina Sazonova, the director of partnerships at SoftGamings, said when reflecting on the deal: “We are overjoyed to welcome Golden Hero to our fold and, with it, give our operators a chance to improve their game portfolios with exciting and never-before-seen titles. By working with us, Golden Hero will get a chance to expand to new markets and showcase its products in the best possible way, so this partnership is the essence of a win-win situation for all parties concerned.”
