Please join me at my panel at #PAXWest 2018 – “Latinx in Games: We Are Here and You Belong Here Too” occuring Saturdaying September 1st at 3:30-4:30pm in the Cat Theater. Incredibly honored and extremely excited to be fostering a community for Latinx from every part of the world.
The Latinx community is filled with a strong, vibrant, and colorful culture that is reflected by the diversity of our roles spread all over the gaming industry. We’re fostering a community where Latinx can meet, exchange ideas, and grow.
You don’t have to be fully fluent in Spanish or raised completely Hispanic to be included here. We want to share our cultures, our struggles, and our triumphs with the entire Latinx community and our allies, in the hope that we inspire our next generation of developers.
Honored to be joined by:
