Calling all diverse wargamers!

Are you BAME, POC, LGBT, disabled, a woman, or otherwise diverse?

I want to know more about your experiences in wargaming.

Please take a few minutes to fill in this survey. Thanks!


For the purposes of this survey, diverse means anyone who identifies as outside the majority in terms of backround, life-experience, class, as well as the protected characteristics covered by the Equality Act.

    Hi Michael, diversity covers a huge spectrum. There are the protected characteristics of race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, and gender. There are also socio-economic factors, growing up poor, having a certain kind of education, having been in Care, or the victim of violence or crime. It was important to me that I cast the net wide to include the voices I want to hear from. To answer your question, if your class or background or life-experience is something you are conscious of in the wargaming community, then it fits the bill for diversity. And if you’re not sure, or you’re worried that your perspective is not being represented in mainstream wargaming, then it fits the bill for diversity. And if you feel that diversity is not relevant to you as a wargamer, then there’s no mandate to take the survey.

    The survey makes no sense since your definition of “diverse” makes no sense. What is a “majority background”? How can I tell what my “class” is, or whether or not I fit into the “majority class”? What is a “majority life-experience”?
