The “50 Over 50” List for the game industry was conceived by and executed by Kate Edwards, a 26+ year industry veteran.

This effort was conceived to help counter the trend of glossing over ageism and playing off the much trumpeted “30 Under 30” lists. Soliciting nominations from a wide array of game industry colleagues around the world, the primary intent is to demonstrate that ageism, like sexism, must be openly confronted, discussed, and addressed.

The list is one part of a broader advocacy focus that Kate has been pursuing for several years.To find out more about her various initiatives beyond the “50 Over 50” List, please visit her Game Advocacy website.
