The Gaming Stadium
TGS Presents Ladies Night
We’re HYPED to host our first ladies-only event at TGS. Even though almost 50% of the gaming population is female, they are still very under-represented in esports. We’re looking to change that! 🤩
We’re hosting this ladies night to encourage female gamers to come to the stadium, feel comfortable, and just have fun! Even all the staff will be ladies! The purpose of this is to empower and recognize female gamers in the local community in a safe, inclusive environment. 👾
This event is open to people who identify as women as well as any individual who is in a gender minority in their field. This includes trans individuals, genderqueer, agender, intersex, two spirit, and non-binary folks. 💕
➡️ Free Entry!
➡️ 6:00PM – Panel on the main stage with talks from prominent females in the gaming community:
⭐ Melissa Dex Guzman – Game Dev / Director of Smash Forward
⭐ Brenda Bailey – Executive Director, DigiBC
⭐ Renee Klint – Game Dev / Marketing Manager, Archiact VR
⭐ Mia Craft – Outreach and Operations Coordinator, Volcanic Media Inc.
➡️ 7:00PM – 11:00PM – Gaming shenanigans:
