Gen.G is celebrating International Women’s Month with livestreams and networking events while raising money for the 1,000 Dreams Fund and Do Good Fund: Ukraine Aid. To kick off the initiative, Gen.G will hold a livestream on Thursday starting at 4 p.m. ET featuring women in gaming and music.
The participating artists include Ylona Garcia and Stephanie Poetri, two 88Rising music artists (with Garcia being featured in Neon’s VALORANT theme song). Shannon Williams, a VALORANT voice actress and Gen.G content creator will also be there. Gen.G content creator and recording artist Nicki Taylor will host, facilitating a conversation about everyone’s experiences as musicians and gamers.
Gen.G also made the announcement on Twitter, noting that they will match the amount raised and donate it to Do Good Fund: Ukraine Aid.
“It’s now our third year of Gen.G’s Women’s Month initiatives, and I am so excited to start off with a group of such powerful creators,” Gina Chung Lee, the chief marketing officer of Gen.G, said.
Throughout March, several Gen.G VALORANT personalities will support the 1,000 Dreams Fund: BroadcastHER initiative and Do Good Fund: Ukraine Aid. Some of these personalities include Gloria “ploo” Kim, Sean “sgares” Gares and Caitlin “supcaitlin” Huang.
