#1reason blew up on twitter and brought the conversation about women in the game industry to the forefront. Join the conversation this Tuesday at the NYU Game Center.
NYU Game Center MFA student Toni Pizza has brought together a collection of thinkers to lead a discussion on the topic, and we invite you to be a part of the dialogue. Naomi Clark (Brooklyn Game Ensemble), Katherine Isbister (NYU Poly), Frank Lantz (NYU/Zynga), Colleen Macklin (Parsons the New School, PETLab), Karen Sideman (Games for Change), and Sarah Schoemann (NYU Poly student- Hey Girl Gamer) present insight on Twitter’s recent #1Reason hashtag phenomenon. These designers and academics discuss the industry from their perspectives, challenges they’ve overcome, and their thoughts on how anyone in the game industry might adapt to be more inclusive. Q&A will follow.
This event is free and open to the public.
