The Global Game Jam is dedicated to being a welcoming place for all jammers. We do our best to vet all keynote speakers to ensure they espouse our values, but unfortunately sometimes new information comes to light after the fact which demonstrates that our choice was not a good one. For this, we take accountability and apologise.

You’re invited to an AMA!
Live on Zoom on Sunday, 5 July, the Global Game Jam board hosted an Ask Me (or rather Us) Anything live on Zoom at 12:00 (noon) Los Angeles / 20:00 London / 5:00 Tokyo. We picked times which were late for Europe and early for Asia/Pacific, but we are happy to have feedback on this moving forward as this will be the first of many such AMAs, aiming to conduct them quarterly.

Black Lives Matter.
This is a statement which should be self-evident to everyone everywhere, including the Global Game Jam. Equality and a commitment to diversity are at the core of the Global Game Jam, although we, as an org, haven’t made an official statement saying as much until now.
