Violence and war games rule the day. Adventures in making the world a better place rule the future. The panel will chronicle the evolution of gaming from entertainment to philanthropy. The panelists will discuss how gaming can bring awareness to issues of respecting women, self-esteem and female image. The panelists will discuss the opportunities to connect digital natives and their voice to organizations and institutions through interactive media. We will discuss raising the bar on interactivity and doing something while we’re saying something.
