Hi, in addition to the Game Writing Portfolio Workout on September 28 (Update! New overflow class date October 20 added), I'll be speaking on a couple panels this month as well as at New York ComicCon (Yay!) in early October.
I'm excited to represent Women in Games International (WIGI) on a panel about diversity initiatives in law and technology. I've spoken about the need for diversity in the game industry at GDC, Austin Game Conference, and most recently, at the 2015 Different Games Conference. I was recently profiled in "6 Inspiring Women Who Have Succeeded in Male-Dominated Industries" and I'm really interested in hearing what other industries have done to help women succeed.
The panel is open to the public. To attend, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept 14.
