Hasbro is hosting a Women Innovators of Play event on Sept. 12 at 10 a.m. ET. The virtual celebration will feature a special key announcement from the company and guest lectures from leading industry experts.
The event celebrates women‘s leadership, innovation, and creativity within the industry. Participants will learn about the process of pitching a new toy or game and the journey through the Hasbro pipeline from concept to creation. Attendees can expect a dynamic program that includes discussions with Aisha Tyler, actor, director, and entrepreneur; Elizabeth Hargrave, board game designer; Kim Boyd, Head of Toy at Hasbro; Cynthia Williams, President of Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro Gaming; and more.
“Women inventors have played a vital role throughout history — and at Hasbro, we are dedicated to connecting and collaborating with innovative women with revolutionary ideas,” Boyd says. “In our 100 years in business, Hasbro has consistently supported women trailblazers, including the inventors of Guess Who, Ora Coster, and Candy Land, Eleanor Abbott, and we’re proud to highlight women leaders across the world about the toy industry and beyond.”
