Women in Gaming Rally at GDC 2018: Event Recap



Team Xbox was proud to host the 18th annual Women in Gaming Rally during GDC 2018. This year we hosted over 700 industry professionals and the event continues to be a place where this vibrant community can come together, network, hear from their peers and celebrate their accomplishments.

Hosted at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco. The Rally included a series of panels and keynotes where women across the gaming industry discussed game design, inclusivity in tech and much more.
