Women in Gaming: Winning or Losing?

Video games are still commonly thought of as a leisure activity for boys and young men, so the industry continues to operate under the assumption that they are their primary audience.

This panel discussion will address changes currently happening as well as the importance of encouraging more women to pursue careers in this industry.
