Please join Niantic's Advocacy Women's and Marginalized Genders Group, The Wolfpack, in an open discussion about the challenges women face every day in the industry and some tangible actions you can implement at your company. The Wolfpack strives to create a safe and welcoming space for women and their allies to share challenges, ask hard questions and provide practicable and tangible advice and solutions. We invite you to come "howl" with us for a roundtable discussion where we can all share and learn from women from across the industry.

You'll leave this season with examples of how different women's advocacy groups have been set up to help support, elevate and celebrate the women of the industry, and tips on how to take those lessons back and have an impact at your own company.

Women in the games and tech industry, and allies looking to support them.
