Anita delivered the keynote address at the 2017 Women in Games Conference at the East London Arts and Music Academy on September 6th. Women in Games is a non-profit, games industry diversity organization, and their recent conference drew over 40 speakers and panelists to discuss the diverse talent within the games industry. The conference, which aims “to educate and inspire, and help stimulate future generations,” included a mix of keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops, the HR Manager’s Forum, an expo and the European Women in Games Hall of Fame Awards, into which Anita was inducted.
Joining Anita in delivering a keynote address was Brie Code, the writer, AI programmer, and CEO and creative director of Tru Luv Media, a tiny video game studio “making games with people who don’t like games.”
