The Number One Educational Resource for the Game Industry

Session Name:

Advocacy Microtalks: Culture, Civics, & Karma


Games are a powerful force for cultural change. As members of the games industry, we are the ones who hold the power to direct this change. The impact of these efforts are felt within the industry as well as the world around us. And best of all, when done right, it comes hand-in-hand with popular, critical and commercial success. This session spotlights six leaders from leadership, design, and community who are driving positive cultural change through games in 2024. Drawing from work on games such as 'Destiny 2,' 'Among Us,' and 'Thirsty Suitors', this panel discusses how games shape culture and provide practical insights including: the value of inclusion and cultural specificity in design; tools to develop positive communities; and the key to creating the next generation of entertainment IP. The panel ends with a forecast of the changes to look out for in the coming year.
