FMOD Certification Course seeks to balance gender pay gap


A fitting announcement for International Women’s Day. In an effort to counter the 20% pay gap between men and women’s salaries, Sound Librarian will be making a permanent change to their pricing structure, by allowing women wishing to enroll for any course or access training materials for a 20% discount on advertised prices.

Speaking from the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, Stephan Schutze of Sound Librarian has said, “to counter the pay gap disparity, this will apply to regular pricing AND to any sale pricing of our products. [It] is a small attempt to address an imbalance and support women in games.”

Those wishing to take advantage of the policy will have to confirm their identity and applications will be processed manually. For further information, contact Stephan Schutze at Sound Librarian.
