Overview: Over the years, companies in the gaming sector and beyond have made the commitment to do better when it comes to pushing for diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). Leveling up on those promises takes the entire industry and everyone in the room. Join us in a conversation with Patty Dingle, Riot Games, Laura Waniuk, Bad Robot Games, Ekta Chopra, e.l.f. Beauty and Jenn Panattoni, Xbox, who are leaders equipping their organizations and teams to drive change inside and out. We'll hear about initiatives that have been created to level the playing field for women and support broader DEI priorities. We'll discuss what has worked and those that didn't quite land and what everyone can do to be an agent for change, no matter how small the action.
