Elizabeth Sampat is a creative leader, game designer and activist. Her day job is to work on blockbuster mobile titles that have been downloaded over three billion times; at night, she crafts personal games that are intimate, revealing, and push the boundaries of the relationship between game and player. In her spare time, Sampat also works to make the industry she loves a better place for women and marginalized people. She served on the advisory board for WIGJ, one of the largest global advocacy groups for women in games; Marie Claire called her a "ceiling-smashing, see-it-to-be-it badass" when they named her one of "20 Women Changing The Ratio" in male-dominated industries. Sampat's personal work has been covered by the LA Times, Lifehacker, and VICE, and my advocacy and talks have been covered on Polygon, The Guardian, Forbes, and more. Her book Empathy Engines: Design Games That Are Personal, Political, And Profound was released in early 2017.
