Through the mentorship program, individuals with a passion for video games further their careers. Develop at Ubisoft will provide participants with specialised training and mentorships from Ubisoft team members. The program is available at 20 of Ubisoft’s studios throughout the globe. Mentorships will last for four to eight weeks and participants will receive constructive feedback.
“I’m enthusiastic about the potential of Develop at Ubisoft to empower women and non-binary individuals to begin their journey in the gaming industry,” says senior vice president of production technology at Ubisoft and the program’s sponsor, Guillemette Picard. “This initiative will help foster an inclusive and supportive environment not just at Ubisoft but in our industry, one that values everyone’s unique perspectives and talents, regardless of gender.”
