An analysis of data from WIPO found that women in Australia are less likely to be inventors than men. There is a gap of 2%, which is higher than the international average. This suggests that there are barriers to women's participation in innovation in Australia.
Moreover the analysis of WGEA data -Gender equality score card 2022 shines light about the gender pay gap of 22.8% where women are paid on average annually 26.6 K less than men .
We, as a team, believe that the change needs to come from younger generations. For that, creative methods such as games shall generate better interest among youngsters as well as community and will influence public authorities to make policy amendments for more female enablement across industry sectors and create significant uplift in the ESG performance.
"InclusiPlay" takes the format of a snakes and ladders board game. Players move their game pieces based on dice rolls, navigating through various challenges and opportunities related to ESG topics.
Points and Badges:
Players earn points for successfully navigating challenges, answering ESG-related questions correctly, and making sustainable choices within the game. Points can contribute to their overall progress and success.
Additionally, players can earn badges for achieving specific milestones or demonstrating their understanding of ESG concepts. These badges not only serve as a form of recognition but also encourage players to learn and engage more deeply with the game's content.
Each space on the game board could represent a different aspect of ESG, such as environmental conservation, workplace diversity, ethical governance, and more. As players land on these spaces, they encounter challenges, trivia questions, or scenarios related to that specific ESG aspect.
To enhance the game's impact, you could link certain in-game achievements or milestones to real-world actions. For example, earning a badge related to reducing energy consumption in the game could translate to participants pledging to reduce their energy consumption at home.
Awareness and Engagement:
By presenting ESG challenges and opportunities in a game format, "InclusiPlay" effectively captures players' attention and encourages them to learn more about these critical topics. The combination of points, badges, and interactive gameplay motivates players to explore the various aspects of sustainability and encourages positive behavior changes.
