Leveling the playing field: Why Mastercard are creating a Gamer Academy 🎮
🎮 Digital transformation is sparking cracks in the gaming world's glass ceiling, and Mastercard's Gamer Academy is here to break the barriers.
💡 With over 3 billion self-proclaimed gamers globally, it's astonishing to learn that women make up fewer than 5% of the Esports workforce. This represents a gaping inequity in the industry.
🌐 In fact, it's a pitfall that shows a stark discrepancy between the number of women gamers and the representation in professional gaming. Did you know nearly half of the gaming population are women?
🚀 But don't worry, Mastercard is stepping up to restore the balance of opportunity in gaming with the first-ever Mastercard Gamer Academy, a move I find commendable.
💪 Their aim? To fuel the next generation of gaming talent, advocating for inclusivity, and providing a supportive environment for those who dream of turning their passion for esports into a profession.
📚 With strategic partnerships from Riot Games to G2 Esports, the Mastercard Academy offers a much-needed platform for nurturing gaming talent, regardless of gender.
💫 With the rapid evolution of technologies like Web3, AI, and the Metaverse, I predict a future where the gaming landscape will look vastly different, becoming a more inclusive, dynamic, and competitive field.
🔮 As we closely watch the chaos morph into clarity, we can expect the Mastercard Gamer Academy to reshape the gaming industry and inspire future generations of gamers.
