The University of Southern California cancelled an event for students in its game-design program last week because the panel of industry leaders did not include any women.

Just hours before the “Legends of the Games Industry” discussion was scheduled to begin on April 20, the USC Interactive Media & Games department announced on its Facebook page that the event had been cancelled “in the interest of promoting diversity and inclusion,” and that a replacement event “with a balanced group of panelists” will be arranged in the coming weeks.
