Insights Series #1 : Empowering Women in Esports

📅 Thursday, April 29th, 2021 || 🕓 5.00 PM CET/11 AM EST


The stereotype of women and girls who are not interested in video games also means that the gaming industry still does not widely perceive women as a target group. This can be seen, for example, in the design of game content, where it often becomes clear that this is intended to appeal to heterosexual young men. This says a lot about how the gaming industry thinks and in turn suggests that video games are not for women.

But yet, out of 34.3 million people who play video games at least casually, 47% are women. This makes it even more surprising that there are so few recognisable female esports athletes and business women in the scene.

For Esports BAR is important, to us, that the topics of gender & diversity are taken into account in the industry.

Insights Series #2 : Purpose, Impact & Esport

📅 Thursday, May 20th, 2021 || 🕓 5.00 PM CET/11 AM EST


With the global pandemic, the climate changes, the activist positions of athletes against discrimination and the public demonstrations for social justice have drastically accelerated not only the importance for companies to take an active role on societal issues but also, to stand out from the crowd to respond to the need of the new generations.  Today we know that 80% of global consumers now agree that businesses must play a meaningful and credible role in solving societal problems. They must communicate better on these issues (source: Edelman Confidence Barometer) 70% of young people from Gen Z (after 1993) also believe that organisations must be much more activist and more contributory in the face of societal issues (source: Pew Research Center). That is why some organisations are also changing, in the eports industry, they are now seeking to align their purpose, mission, their strategies to leave a positive impact on the ecosystem.
