Report: Women Earn More Than Men in UK Game Biz

Glass ceiling? 

Not in the British game industry, apparently…

A survey conducted by MCV UK and Develop magazine reports that women employed by the video game sector in the UK earn an average salary of £33,260 ($US48,539). That’s about £2,000 higher than the average wage of their male counterparts.

From MCV:

Women working in the games industry also seem to be more optimistic about their career and job prospects for 2009. 72 per cent of female respondents said that they were confident about the year ahead, versus 66 per cent of men who said the same.

Although just ten per cent of the industry’s workforce is female, prominent women in the sector think the news shows that the market should be attracting more female talent.
