Gaming for the Greater Good
On November 2, the Greater Worcester Community Foundation (GWCF), Becker College, and the Massachusetts Digital Games Institute (MassDiGI) will co-host “Interactive Media & You,” a panel of experts and break-out sessions exploring the role of digital games in business and non-profit success. Attendees will learn how interactive media can help their organization advance its mission by connecting, engaging, and supporting its constituents or clients.
