Yesterday we reported that in the CDG 2023 several women had reported cases of harassment, abuse and even some incidents with drugs in the drink during the event.
After a period of silence, the GDC has officially responded to these claims, telling TheGamer that it is “very upset to hear that some people, especially women, have reported experiences regarding GDC Week at events. off-site, including muggings and pecks.” . This is outrageous and unacceptable, everyone has the right to feel safe.”
In the same statement, the GDC offered its support to the victims by contacting local authorities, scene security and other means to help those who have been affected by these horrendous behaviors. However, even with the denunciation of these events, it is worth asking why they continue to occur in today’s society and how they remain present at professional events of this type.
