Unity Launches a Series of ‘Women in Gaming’ Workshops
We have some exciting news to share! While talking internally about programs that would empower women and encourage participation in the greater gaming community, we realized we needed to think big, because it is super important that we do our part. With that in mind, we decided to create a series of global workshops to tackle some of the difficult topics around development of women’s careers in gaming, while offering women the opportunity to network and learn from each other about topics such as career building, leadership, strategic thinking and organizational dynamics.
We have selected a range of talented industry leaders with exceptional experience in their fields, who will share their experiences, insights, and best practices on how to improve strategic thinking, influencing, and career navigation in gaming.
