Event Details

The game industry has grown in leaps-and-bounds since the early days. We’ve seen huge advancements in graphics, back-end technology, game mechanics and storytelling. We’ve grown to be a highly profitable industry with billions to our name each year. Despite our success, however, we still face a distinct challenge – attracting more women to the profession of making games and eliminating discrimination against women within the game industry.

Our panel of game industry professionals from both the educational and entertainment sectors will discuss the current working landscape. Panelists will highlight some of the many benefits of working in games, share their own personal challenges and discuss what role men can play in becoming champions for women.  

Moderated by Patricia Resende, Managing Editor of Mass High Tech, the panel will include Courtney Stanton (Women in Games Boston), Michelle Yaiser (Adobe), Jen Groff (MIT Learning Games Network), Fiona Cherbak (Interactive Selection, Boston Festival of Indie Games) and Vicky Wu Davis (Adalia, FrogHop).  

 

Come early or stay late to enjoy light appetizers / drinks and to network with your peers. The event will be held on Thursday, February 28th from 6pm – 9pm at the Microsoft NERD Center (One Memorial Drive, Cambridge).

Event sponsored by Microsoft New England Research & Development Center; Adobe; Morse, Barnes-Brown & Pendleton; FableVision and Becker.
