In April, MCV Pacific unveiled its Women in Games list, which featured the 75 most influential women across the Australian and New Zealand games industries.
Following this event, MCV Pacific has also announced the formation of a Women in Games Advisory Board, designed to keep the publication up to date with issues and events facing women within the Pacific games industry.
