Overview Did you know that over the next 10 years the U.S. demand for scientists and engineers is expected to increase at four times the rate of all other occupations? With less than 25% of women entering these fields, recent government labor statistics show a shortfall of qualified applicants, which can lead to a less competitive US economy. Featuring panelists from gaming, government, and media organizations, this panel will speak to the changes being made in global media to address this long-term issue. Presented by Women in Games International.
