LCCA Head of School Named in 100 Most Influential Games People In Britain

Marie-Claire Isaaman, Head of Visual Media at LCCA, has been listed as one of the 100 most influential games people in Britain by GamesIndustry.biz.

She was the first academic to be inducted into the European Women In Games Hall of Fame and later became the CEO of the organisation, helping it to improve diversity in the video games industry.

 “At school, girls often aren’t sufficiently encouraged to follow careers in games or technology - many aren’t even aware this is a viable career path,” she said. “At college and university level, many courses are extremely male dominated and the curricula can reflect that. Consequently, girls can find it difficult to express themselves.”
