Community Managers: The Everyday Heroes of Gaming

Community managers play a huge role in creating safe spaces where players can be accepted without fear of discrimination (race, gender, religion, sexuality, age, ability). They set the right tone by celebrating diverse community members while managing trolls and finding a way to push out harmful behavior. Join experienced community managers from Twitch, The Sims, Rocksmith and Life is Strange as they share their stories, wins and challenges in building inclusive online communities for everyone.

Panelists:

Erin "Aureylian" Wayne [Lead Community Manager, Twitch], Amanda Drake [Global Community Manager, Maxis / The Sims], Dan Amrich [Community Developer for Rocksmith, Ubisoft], Eric So [Senior Community Manager, Square Enix]
