Twitch’s Inclusivity guild is hosting a Twitch Talk with Tanya DePass, who will be discussing the challenges and best tools for streaming safely as a woman, person of color, or LGBT creator on Twitch. Tanya is the founder and director of I Need Diverse Games, a not-for-profit foundation that is dedicated to better diversification of all aspects of gaming. She champions to make gaming better and more inclusive for everyone, often speaking on issues of diversity, feminism, race, intersectionality & other topics at conventions.
Highlights of her talk will cover issues with broadcasting safely as a marginalized caster, ways in which casters have taken steps to mitigate problems around harassment, and suggestions on tools that Twitch could give streamers tools to combat this.
When: Tuesday, September 12
Time: 4:30-5:30PM Pacific US timezone
The talk will be streamed on twitch.tv/twitchoffice and archived if you can’t watch it live.
