We’re pleased to share with you the 20 individuals on our new and expanded Advisory Board. In developing a plan for the Advisory Board and its structure, we hoped to broaden the voices formally serving as the sounding board for Games for Change, in the development of new programs and services for the community. We’ve expanded the group to include 20 individuals coming from the game making community, academia, learning and social impact experts (both funders and thought-leaders). We’re excited to have their support and active engagement in Games for Change moving forward!

We are still working with members of the Advisory Board to expand the group to include additional expertise in a few areas, particularly from the NGO community. Having such great and high profile ambassadors of the organization aware of our programs and multi-year initiatives is not only a great way to help spread the word about the organization, but also a practical way for the staff to serve the community better. And on that note, we’re interested in feedback from all. So please feel free to drop us a line whenever you wish at contact (at) gamesforchange.org.
