9:14 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Gamasutra is reporting that Women in Games International will hold their first conference in a planned series. The subject of the conference will be "Advancing Your Career in Game Development: The Women's Perspective" and will be held at Microsoft's headquarters in Redmond, Washington from 1pm to 6pm on Saturday, September 10th.

The conference is intended to be a forum for discussion of a wide range of issues related to women and gaming. Topics will range from giving tips on breaking into the gaming industry, advancing your career once there, and achieving a balance between work and home life.

Mary Margaret Walker, CEO of Mary-Margaret.com and a WIGI sponsor commented: "The role of women in the industry, as well as women and girls as players, is being discussed at new levels with increasing energy and awareness. Women In Games International is providing a venue for continuing this dialogue on an even more open playing field. Any event or activity that contributes to exploring these topics is ultimately beneficial to the game industry as a whole."
The half day conference is free to attend and will consist of an opening keynote address, four panel discussions and a post-conference networking reception. For more information check out the sites listed below.
