We’ve worked hard on making this new feature the best it can be, and we’re so excited to share an overview with you today!
Today (and every day), we’re proud of the amazing women who are an indispensable part of the Mistplay team. In honour of International Women’s Day, we’re sharing their thoughts on the complexities of navigating the workforce as women.
“Recruitment in a very male dominated industry can be a challenge. A lot of people end up talking down to you…I’m very lucky to have grown up with a strong mother who taught me that other people’s opinions of you are none of your business.

Leading up to the holidays, we invited Nick from Fun Broker for an interactive, enjoyable activity where our team learned about American Sign Language (ASL). Through mini-games and…

For example, what would happen to our company culture, which was forged through in-person happy hours and team lunches? What steps could we take to protect our team’s well-being during this stressful time?
These challenges were intensified by our team’s growth over the…
