Sexism and harassment in the workplace are serious problems. But individuals and organisations often don’t recognise the problem and sexism goes unchallenged. This can create an increasingly hostile working environment.

The Antisexism Game is a unique training app that helps employees recognise and respond to sexism in the workplace.

The Antisexism Game combines science and serious games to create a highly engaging training tool that helps participants recognise and challenge sexism in the workplace.

The app is designed for individuals, and it works on any device. It takes 5-10 minutes to complete. It includes a self-assessment to help players decide if they’ve witnessed or experienced sexism or harassment. It then offers practical advice on how to respond appropriately.

The Antisexism Game was created by:

  • Dr. Caroline Mitchell, an academic with 20 years’ expertise researching and teaching the psychology of prejudice
  • Focus Games, the leading developer of game-based learning tools in healthcare.

What happens when I play the game?

The game is quite new, and we are gathering feedback from as many people as we can. You don’t have to register or log-in to play the game and it is free to use. It will only take a few minutes to complete the game. We would be grateful if you could complete a very short questionnaire after playing so we can improve the game.

The app works on any device through a web browser all you need is an internet connection.

The Antisexism Game explores sexism and sexual harassment in ways that are meaningful in real-world situations. The app helps employees engage in a process of self-assessment. This helps them to decide whether they have witnessed, or experienced, sexism or sexual harassment in the workplace. It then gives them advice about how to interact with their organisation to address the problem.

The app is 100% anonymous and each player is free to decide whether they want to take any action after they complete the game. The app offers links to organisations that offer advice and support to victims of sexism or sexual harassment.
