This weekend at PAX East I was fortunate enough to be a part of an amazing panel called Why It’s AWESOME To Be A Female In the Gaming Industry. It was a humbling/fantastic experience and I was fortunate enough to work with some fantastic ladies. We wanted to bring a positive panel to PAX East this year that was meant to empower and inspire not just women, but anyone who sat in and watched.

Check out the summary and video below and let us know what you think!
