@myr Private scholarships and charities do not exist to push fairness or equality. They serve a purpose. In this case, encouraging more women to enter a field that lacks women.

It has nothing to do with equality for crying out loud. That's like saying all Christian charities should have to cater to the needs of heathens like me, and that will never happen.

But if you're not for any group having an advantage, you should just kill yourself. No really, not trolling. If you're a middle class white male like me, you were BORN into all the advantages needed to succeed in this country. Whining that other people might get help you don't when you started in a better place is just . . . sad.

To have true Equality you have to start with not singling out a gender or race...somehow, this event fails at the first hurdle. If you are actively recruiting one specific gender you are by extension being sexist.

If an employer announced a male only recruitment event, the femenists would be out with pitchforks.

Why does it matter that dev studios have more men than women? There aren't enough women in the industry and there needs to be more because?

Instead of pointing out "we need more women" or "we need more ethnic minorities" people should be learning that employment has nothing to do with race or gender and therfore "we need more people" is the only thought they should have.

Recruit on skills and merit only. Stop looking at the face and get your damn heads back on the resume/C.V.

@fallwind
but why do the percentages of females to males in any industry matter - game design or nursing?
