Director/co-founder Justin Woodward talks about the 2023 XPerience Excellence Accelerator and what's next.
Speaking with GamesIndustry.biz, Black Voices in Gaming director and co-founder Justin Woodward says the most significant lesson for the organization has been creating work that leads to more sustainability for Black professionals within the industry.
"I would say the takeaway is how do you create a nonprofit organization, find the funding involved to help developers, find the opportunities to fund the organization to pay your team and get the work done? A lot of this stuff is [still] pro bono.
I still work with Humble on the Black Game Developer Fund. So how do we transcend a fund [and deliver] critical information and knowledge necessary to make sustainable businesses?"
