Twenty-five members of the DMG community have received All-Access Passes to the Game Developers Conference through our scholarship program. But we need your help getting the Convoy to San Francisco!
GDC puts amazing opportunities for personal, professional and community development within our reach. But many of our members are low-income, students, or freelancers, so the cost of traveling to the conference is still prohibitively high even with the passes taken care of.
Half of the scholarship recipients will be unable to afford attending without financial support to defray the cost of flights, safe accommodations, local transportation and food. Help us out by purchasing a sponsorship package now.
DMG provides year-round training, events, resources, mentorship and workspace to gender-marginalized people game developers—a direct benefit to their schools, communities, present and future employers. We operate on less than $5,000 per year, supporting Toronto-based freelancers, game design students and low-income independent game makers.
We do a lot with very little, and with your help, we can do more!
It sends a strong statement about your organization's values and commitment to creating positive workplaces, opportunities, and communities for gender-marginalized people in games and technology.
