Games for Change

Working as the Director of Programs, Tania oversees a variety of youth, community and client-facing programs at Games for Change (G4C). Tania provides oversight of the G4C Awards at the G4C Festival, the largest gaming event in New York dubbed by national media as “the Sundance of video games.” Tania manages the G4C Student Challenge – a year-round game design program for middle and high public school students which, now in its third year, runs in various cities across the country. She also manages G4C’s design challenges, which invite professional game developers to submit game concepts and/or prototypes that address specific social issues. Currently, Tania is supporting the launch of the the first-ever CS4All Hack League – a bracketed game design competition in partnership with the NYC Department of Education and CS4All. Tania graduated from Cornell University with a BA in film, theater and dance and recently completed a certificate in entertainment media management from the NYU School of Professional Studies.
