Default Girls’ Party at Austin GDC (Boys are Welcome, Too)

Women who are interested in working in the game industry, as well as those who are already in it, are invited to meet other gaming girls at an upcoming mixer party during the Austin Game Developers Conference.

The gathering, which is also open to men, will take place September 5 at the Six Lounge ( and will be hosted by Women in Games International, a non-profit organization that represents females in the game industry.

We at highly encourage aspiring game developers, both male and female, to attend free events of this kind, even when costs prohibit attending the related conferences. Parties, mixers, and other informal meetings give you uninhibited access to the people who work in the industry, and introducing yourself to them is one of the best ways to get that first toe in the door. And despite whether anyone will directly admit it, most game companies are ravenously looking to interview and hire more females, which currently only comprise about 10 percent of the total industry, including PR, marketing, and administrative professionals.

The WIGI event coincides with the Austin Game Developers Conference ( September 5 through 7, and a smaller conference run by WIGI called She Got Game ( Saturday, September 8).

Admission to the WIGI mixer is free, but partygoers must RSVP in advance:
