Our next ‘Identity in the Workplace’ panel event is a conversation with three panelists from underrepresented backgrounds sharing their personal experience about working in the gaming industry. Video games are now a multi-billion-dollar industry with numerous career pathways in the development, marketing, and monetization of games. The industry is largely made up of professionals who identify as either white or male, and our panelists will share both about their career pathway and also their experience as an underrepresented person working in this field. We want to acknowledge that our panelists do not aim to represent all marginalized or underrepresented populations in the gaming industry and will be sharing from their personal experience in the field.
This will be a moderated panel to start and then move into an open Q&A with the audience, so come ready with questions! This panel will not be recorded and is only available live, so we look forward to ‘seeing’ you there.
This panel event is presented by the Career & Internship Center, in partnership with UW Esports and the UW Alumni Association, as part of our ongoing Alumni Panel Series for students. More information about the Alumni Panel Series can be found here: https://careers.uw.edu/alumni-panels/
