Meet the Women Evolving the Gaming Industry

Mar 15, 2022

11:30am – 12:30pm CT

In recent years, there has been a paradigm shift, with more gaming companies acknowledging the gap between women, LGBTQ+ and others who do not fit the traditional gamer stereotype.

With the advent of televised esports and game streaming, the world is beginning to witness the magnitude of gaming careers, and the power of the industry overall. This session brings together four different experiences from women working in gaming media, streaming, professional esports and the business of gaming. Moderated by Jill Kenney, CEO of Paidia Gaming, a platform dedicated to creating real spaces for women gamers, this panel will be a dynamic and thoughtful discussion on the ever-evolving gaming industry and how everyone can play a role in making it an even better place for everyone.
