The Ubisoft Future Women in Games mentorship aims to attract and develop diverse talent for our studios around the world. With more people playing games than ever before, we have an exciting opportunity to create inclusive entertainment that is truly reflective of our diverse world.
The industry continues to benefit from different backgrounds, fresh perspectives, and new ideas. Ubisoft Future Women in Games supports this evolution by highlighting emerging talent – when they thrive, so does the industry.
Successful applicants receive mentorship from our experts, and hands-on game development experience.
The inaugural year of the program kicks off with two disciplines: game design and programming.
- Submission are now open for the Game Design Challenge. The deadline to submit is September 20, 2019. Apply your design sensibilities across the multi-part Game Design challenge that will represent the production journey of a Game Designer at Ubisoft.
- The programming challenge will be a technical and gameplay challenge where participants will create a game in a weekend, entirely in C++ using a provided API. The programming challenge will open October 25, 2019 at 2pm EST.
Challenge winners will kick-start their careers in the industry with a Ubisoft mentorship and a paid apprenticeship to learn from the studio’s top talent. Full details on eligibility and submission requirements for each discipline can be found here.
