Milica Todorović

I’m a Producer who believes that making games is the best job in the world, and is driven by the idea of making the industry a more welcoming place for all

Currently working as an Associate Producer in Ubisoft and loving every minute of it.
My fight is for diversity in the industry and creating a more welcoming environment for all, which is why I became a Women in Games ambassador.
