The Seattle IGDA team and our Diversity Collective+ have joined forces. We will be putting on a monthly panel series called ” Becoming” where games industry professionals reflect on their career path.
The first of this monthly series is on Tuesday, August 11.
Join us on https://twitch.tv/igdaseattle for this talk by some high-level executives in the games industry as they talk about their journey to becoming who they are today and hopefully inspire you to follow in their footsteps.
Moderated by Sarah Belhumeur

We are excited to announce that Premack Rogers P.C. and Seattle Indies are sponsoring a $500 donation to a charitable organization in honor of the panelists. Viewers will select the charity at the end of the panel from a list of charities nominated by the panelists.
