This Women’s History Month, we’re celebrating the mentors and role models who have helped some of our trailblazing women designers and artists find their calling in gaming. Sledgehammer Games’ Ashlee Hynes points to Grazyna Domanska for her compassion and self-accountability: “I feel understood and supported by her in a way that does not diminish my own self-confidence.
