Gaming for Everyone Community Nexus 2019

Xbox is proud to host the first ever Community Nexus event during the 2019 Game Developer's Conference! We are bringing you this event in response to your feedback. 

Last year we held two of our community networking events together in the same venue and the feedback was overwhelming. “More, please.” We heard you and are bringing the Gaming for Everyone Community Nexus, a place where all our developer communities can come together. Come to the Nexus to get the most out of your GDC with professional development resources. You will find organizations and resources that serve your communities and get a chance to meet members of other underrepresented communities and build stronger community ties.

We look forward to seeing you there and helping you get the most out of your time at GDC!

In short, the entire experience at the venue must meet our culture standards.

We encourage everyone to assist in creating a welcoming and safe environment. Please report any concerns, harassing behavior, or suspicious or disruptive activity to venue staff, the event host or owner, or the nearest event staff. We also encourage employees to contact their Microsoft Manager or our Business Conduct Hotline (1-877-320-MSFT​) at any time if you feel a party is against our policy or inconsistent with the Microsoft culture.Outside the United States, call collect to 1-470-219-7087.
