Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles and Women in Games International Unveil Videogame Patch Program to Videogame Professionals at GDC Next
What: Informational panel for videogame professionals at GDC Next about to get involved in shaping the next generation of female videogame developers through participation in the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles’ (GSGLA) videogame development patch program.
Who: Women In Games International, the Girl Scouts of Greater Los Angeles, and E-Line Media
Why: In a recent survey of participants in GSGLA’s STEM programs, “videogame programming” was the number one new program category requested to be incorporated into Girl Scout programming.

WIGI will initiate parts of the patch program with girls a few days later on Nov. 9 at Girltopia, GSGLA’s huge girl power event also at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
When: November 6th from 6pm – 7pm PT
Where: Game Developers Next Conference, Los Angeles Convention Center.
