Our Committees

As a non-profit association, Global Gaming Women relies on the ongoing time and effort selflessly given by the members of its planning committees. We sincerely appreciate the generous commitment each of these women graciously provide, as without their dedication and help, our initiatives would not be possible.

If you are interested in participating on an existing GGW committee, please reach out to us at [email protected].  

Education Committee
All Global Gaming Women education and training conferences are overseen by the Education Committee which is co-chaired by the four women together. These dedicated ladies work together throughout the year to ensure that each GGW-sponsored event provides its scholarship recipients with an exceptional learning experience that provides them with critical tools required to grow personally and professionally.  The Education Committee is supported by the following sub-committees:

  • Eastern Region Education Sub-Committee
  • Midwest Region Education Sub-Committee
  • Southern Region Education Sub-Committee
  • Western Region Education Sub-Committee

Additionally, the Scholarship Committee is a sub-committee of the Education Committee and is responsible for reviewing all submitted scholarship applications to attend GGW-sponsorsed and supported educational events. Using an impartial scoring system, the committee selects the top-scoring applicants and provides them with scholarships that cover each conference's participation fees.

Events Committee
The Events Planning Committee is responsible for planning the education events coordinated by GGW at industry trade shows and conferences throughout the year. Its efforts are supported by additional sub-committees as needed to coordinate larger events like the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) trade show and conference occurring each year in Las Vegas.

The Finance Committee is responsible for overseeing all GGW financial transactions and obligations, ensuring the vitality and sustainability of the Association as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
