We are also excited to introduce the #gamesUR Summit 2023 Hero Ticket Tier. The #gamesUR Summit organizing committee recognizes that systemic injustices put certain communities at a disadvantage and we seek to correct that. To make our community a more diverse, inclusive, and welcoming place, we have set up the Hero Ticket Tier to support the involvement of under served members of our community.

Any costs added to each Hero ticket sale goes to our Diversity Equity and Inclusion travel fund. This fund supports the cost of travel for members of Black, Indigenous, African American, Asian American, Pacific Islander communities as well as disabled communities who may not otherwise be able to participate in the Summit. Although this year's summit is online, it is our hope that a seed will be planted for brighter times when travel is again safe and responsible.

In addition to the Hero Ticket Tier, you are able to purchase general admission and student tickets for the event. You can find out more about Travel Grant here
