    FAQ

    • "Do I need to be Black / Asian / a Minority Ethnic person to be part of the group? I don't want to take your space"
    First, thank you for being aware of the type of space we are establishing! Secondly, no, you do not need to be a BAME person to be part of the group! This space is not exclusively for X minority group since the purpose of BAME in Games is to expand and build each other's BAME networks. BAME members and/or BAME related focus and issues in the tech and game industry is our primary focus however.

    • "Can I help volunteer?"
    Yes! We're currently working out exactly what's needed at the moment so please bare with us and keep an eye out for updates.

    • "Is there anything I can do to help in the meantime?"
    Since we're an up and coming group, there are many different things you can do, to help this group thrive:

    - Be active in the community! Our official links are posted above. Even a like or retweet from our official accounts is always helpful to increase visibility.

    - Sponsors: we're always on the look out for sponsors! If you know of anyone or are happy to help us, do get in touch!

    • "I've a question / suggestion and it hasn't been address in this post!"
    Let me know and I can update this FAQ!

    If not I'll pass it onto Kish Hirani (Chair of BAME in Games) for any other business questions and I'll get back to you.

    Thanks!
    - Jade
