The IGDA Foundation’s Women in Games Ambassadors (WIGAm) program is now accepting applications for the 2017 Game Developers Conference (GDC). The program is open to women-identified students and recent graduates in fields pertaining to game development. Applications should be submitted by or before 30 December 2016.
The WIGAm program provides a comprehensive event scholarship experience to the best and brightest up-and-coming women-identified individuals in games. It includes all-access passes, travel stipends, a week of insider industry events, and lifetime access to a tight-knit community of high-achieving peers. In addition, the WIGAm program creates opportunities for each recipient to engage with top industry professionals through Q&As and group mentorship. Our ambassadors leave the conference better equipped to jump-start their careers and advocate on behalf of diversity in games.
GDC will take place 27-3 March 2017 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, USA. It is the world’s largest and longest-running professionals-only game industry event features over 400 lectures, panels, tutorials and round-table discussions on a comprehensive selection of game development topics taught by leading industry experts.
