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.
