‘The Future Is Female’

Penn College empowering womenPenn College has partnered with Mediaplanet USA for an “Empowering Women in Gaming” campaign to share the resources, tools and technology that are helping female gamers and game-design professionals succeed in a male-dominated industry. The college – which offers a four-year degree in Game & Simulation Programming through its School of Engineering Technologies – has a back-page advertisement in a supplement running in USAToday and available online. The bachelor’s program is just one of the many areas in which the college is addressing a historic underrepresentation of women in STEM fields and the skilled trades. Ready to make some noise? Visit the “Turn It Up” page featured in the ad.
