        Women in Tech

        In this video from SciTech Now, learn how groups of young women are helping to break the stigma of the video game development field being male-oriented. Girl Develop It (GDI) is a national non-profit organization trying to change that disparity by providing education and opportunities to women in local chapters around the country. Last year, women made up twenty-two percent of the game developer workforce, instead of the 11.5 percent in 2009. To help increase these numbers, the local chapters of GDI are offering classes, beginner through advanced, to give female students first-hand experience and self-confidence in the game development field.
