Matt will be discussing women in the technology industry, how they are represented by the media and how this has lead to the current confluence of opinions in #Gamergate. We will also discuss TFYC’s #NotYourShield Project, an art sale to increase diversity. All profits from the sales of items in TFYC store will be donated to The Fine Young Councilors to create scholarship awards for students graduating in game design to promote diversity.
