The annual Kick Up Your Heels fundraiser has become a treasured hallmark event on the annual gaming industry calendar. Now produced by Global Gaming Women, the event raises money to support the Global Gaming Women organization as well as its Charitable Education fund, which provides women throughout the gaming industry with educational scholarships.
To date, hundreds of women have benefited from scholarships awarded from the fund to attend a wide range of educational programs, geared towards furthering recipients’ career paths.
Each year during Kick Up Your Heels, we honor industry women who have truly given back to their community with the Patty Becker Pay it Forward Award. This award is given to women who support women in the gaming industry through GGW efforts and initiatives, as well as support women in other personal and professional endeavors.
