Open Worlds: Women and Diversity in Gaming

July 24 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Let’s level up: despite the expected cliches and tropes, the truth is that gamers—from console to mobile to table-top—belong to one of the most diverse variegated groups around: 45% of gamers are women, and people of color spend more time playing than anyone. Diversity has already been proven to have a positive effect on companies and innovation.

So why is the game design and development industry having a hard time catching up?

Join us on July 24th at “Open Worlds: Women and Diversity in Gaming” where our expert panelists will talk about their experiences with innovating in a traditionally male-dominated space–and how they’re lighting the way for the next generation of game design and development. #SVFGaming

 

Silicon Valley Forum is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization supporting the global startup ecosystem including Women in leadership, business, and tech.  This event is part of a series leading up to our annual Women in Tech Festival 2020.
