Three times is the charm for 1,000 Dreams Fund’s BroadcastHER Academy
What a life-changing day for these women! BroadcastHER Academy winners @PixelSuperhero, @AbsoluteSodium, @HarleighQuynn, and @Heyaroo join 1,000 Dreams Fund CEO and Founder Christie Garton and HyperX’s Head of Strategic Alliances Wendy Lecot.
This year, 1,000 Dreams Fund went on the road with our BroadcastHER Academy winners to visit the ultra-cool HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas, not once, not twice, but THREE times. It was a part of their prize for being selected to the Academy, which also included a $1,000 microgrant, gear from both HARMAN & HyperX and the chance to shadow the Allied Esports team at the Arena for a day.
Yes, thanks to HARMAN, HyperX, and Allied Esports, we were able to make the dreams of these women gamers come true, providing them exclusive access to an industry that can often be hard to navigate. For our winners who aspire to work in it – whether in-front or behind the camera, this was a life-changing opportunity.
We had such fun this year (with more to come in 2020!) , so we wanted to share a recap of everything our Academy winners experienced:
We had a GREAT inaugural year for the BroadcastHER Academy thanks to our fantastic partners who made these visits so special for our women. Stay tuned for what’s in store for an even more exciting 2020!
