ATLANTA, March 30, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Nonprofit organization Gaming Cxmmunity Co. today announced it is partnering with DoorDash, the local commerce platform, to host Creatxr Dash, a conference aimed to provide resources and recognize the next generation of content creators from Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCUs).
The virtual, two-day conference, which will be streamed on March 30, 2022, and March 31, 2022, on Twitch, will feature competitive games, panels, and workshops highlighting Blackleaders in the esports and gaming community. Throughout the event, attendees will hear from prominent Black speakers and panelists in the industry as they learn about content creation and how to get started within the creator or influencer markets. To fuel their experience, attendees, for both days, will also receive a DoorDash promo code to get their favorites delivered on-demand during the event.
“As we developed this program with DoorDash, it was incredibly important to offer these students a complete experience in terms of curriculum, community and some competition,” said Ryan Johnson, founder and executive director of Cxmmunity. “We want to connect them with leaders in our industry who can inspire them to pursue a career in the esports or video game industry and provide them with something tangible and of value to walk away with.”
Through the event and beyond, DoorDash and Cxmmunity will partner to teach, train, and champion the next generation of creators from partnered HBCUs, including Howard University, Morgan State University, and Albany State, generating new ways for individuals to build a career pathway, while also providing resources for local and grassroots gaming communities to build and thrive.
