Global Gaming Women Session: Notes from the Lean-In Circle

This follow-up session from the annual Southern Gaming Summit Global Gaming Women Luncheon will enable attendees to build upon lessons learned from their colleagues during the luncheon’s Lean-In Circle breakout discussions, which focused on how to negotiate the complex landscape of career building for women in gaming. Attendance at the luncheon is not required to gain valuable insights on this important topic. This session will identify specific challenges shared during the luncheon and build upon the real-world solutions offered with an eye towards assisting up and coming women gaming executives.
