What happened in Vegas didn’t stay in Vegas after our recent BroadcastHER Academy Trip in early December 2020. We’re still replaying all the AH.MAZ.ING highlights.

You might remember that we were in Vegas a few months ago for our first 2020 BroadcastHER Academy Fellow visit to the HyperX Esports Arena and our second time there with more of our fellows @NessaMeowMeow, @Bby_Argon, @Giraffley, and @JadeValkyri3 along with 1,000 Dreams Fund founder and CEO Christie Garton, was just as special.

BroadcastHER Academy Fellow @JadeValkyri3 is interviewed by local media about her experience as a fellow and the trip so far.

This trip is part of the prize package for our BroadcastHER Academy Fellowship Program, powered by Allied Esports and HyperX, which we launched to help women reach their career goals in esports and gaming. 

And, after some pandemic delays and added precautions, we’re so grateful that we were able to still make this second trip in 2020. OF COURSE, playing it safe was our first and foremost priority and we followed all CDC guidelines during the trip.

So what was on our Vegas itinerary?

To start with, a tour of the incredible HyperX arena and a virtual focus group with the rock-star HyperX Product Engineering Team. Then, we were able to set up each of the fellows to shadow the other rock-star Allied Esports team members, based on their dreams — whether that’s productions, ops, partnerships, tech, and more. 

The BroadcastHER Academy Fellows received a special behind-the-scenes look at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas — touring the full arena and shadowing the team.

To cap off the day, we attended the Friday Frags tournament where @Giraffley participated in the event and all our fellows had an onstage moment. We also announced our BroadcastHER Fall 2020 Grant recipients — LIVE!

A special on-stage moment with all of the BroadcastHER Fellows, live at the HyperX Esports Arena in Las Vegas, during the BroadcastHER Grant LIVE Announcement.

We had such a whirlwind 24 hours in Vegas, rounding out the 2020 year with a bang! 

We’re looking forward to kicking off 2021 strong in streaming, gaming, and so much more.
