Youth in Esports Research Ad-Hoc Committee
Only selecting committee members from the research team will be able to view your response.
Please input the name that you would like to be called (this does not have to be your legal name.) Please note that a full legal name will be requested only to process honorarium.
Are you 16 years old or older and identify as youth?
We are seeking applications from anyone 16 years old or older, who self-identifies as youth. Though the age range of 16-29 is primarily considered “youth,” we expand this definition to include anyone who still identifies with this term.
The provincial study that the ad-hoc committee will provide input on is related to the state of cyber violence in esports and the impact of cyber violence in online gaming spaces on LGBTQI2S youth. What is your interest in and relationship to these topics?
Please describe the unique perspectives, skills, and expertise you would bring to this committee. [up to 500 words]
As our call outlines, to ensure diversity of opinion and perspective and expand our current capacities, we especially seek to engage Two-Spirit and Indigenous people, Black and other people of colour, people who identify as trans or non-binary, people who live in non-metropolitan areas, and people who identify with disability/as disabled. Please describe your relationship to these communities/identifications. We will read your response in order to best ensure diversity within the Committee.
Selected Committee Members are expected to contribute approximately 10-20 hours of time to the Committee from the start of appointment to July 31, 2021. Please confirm your potential availability.

The Youth in Esports Research Ad-Hoc Committee does not condone transphobia, racism, fatphobia, or ableism of any kind. We reserve the right to remove members from the committee who do not support or hold themselves accountable to these ground rules.

Would you also be interested in participating in a focus group for youth who live in Ontario and are active in esports as players, casual gamers, or audience members? These focus groups would be a place to explore and voice experiences related to the state of online violence faced by LGBTQI2S Ontario esports participants
