Women looking to get into the games industry should keep their collective eye on a special day in September and November.
The Women In Games Initiative, which aims to encourage and promote women in the games industry, is holding its Sydney Mixer at the Academy of Interactive Entertainment's (AIE) new Sydney campus. The two events - one in September for those over 18 and one in November for high school girls - will give those who are interested the chance to mingle with women already working in the industry and ask questions about the gaming workforce.
The initiative was created to try and boost the number of women working in gaming and to show that game design is a viable career path for women.
Boys are allowed.
