Interview with Maxine Dodds

Maxine Dodds

After over a decade of project management in large multinational companies, which followed previous experience as a systems manager, Maxine Dodds founded Scottish Women in Games to support diversification of the games industry in Scotland and Great Britain. With 30% of Britain's gaming industry located within 30 miles of Dundee, Dodds believes the future for Scottish women in gaming is bright, and sees growing opportunity for women in the United Kingdom, European Union, and the United States.
