Moving into the middle of the week of Game Developer’s Conference the show gets into the general sessions of talks and the expo floor opens up. It’s also the busiest day for our Gaming for Everyone team as we throw three community events in one day! Starting the day with brunch, Xbox hosted the 4th annual Celebrating Latinx in Gaming. Joining us this year was Unity who partnered to help make the event a success with their volunteer team and recruiters available to give career job search advice.
The event hosted over 280 gaming industry professionals, students, and allies from Latin America and of Latin American heritage around the world. This was also the first year Latinx in Gaming sponsored three gaming professionals and students to attend GDC through a scholarship program. These game developers had the opportunity to attend talks, networking events, and even a private mentoring session with community sponsor Mike Ybarra. We look forward to continuing the momentum and partnerships with all those who attended.
Hasta el próximo año!
