We are just a couple of weeks out from the Women in Games Annual Global Conference 2023, which takes place on Tuesday October 10th, virtually via the Hopin platform.
At Women in Games we care about bringing more women into a fairer, safer games industry, where women’s representation and wellbeing are of central importance. To this end, the Conference will examine the idea and reality of Disruption as its theme, asking searching questions in every speaker session.
Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect from our speakers and sessions….
