Satisfying the needs and wants of a global audience takes a big, diverse development team. But finding qualified creatives from all walks of life is a difficult challenge. To tackle this problem, the ArenaNet Narrative Team sought to invest in the future via mentorship. Join Associate Narrative Director Bobby Stein and Writer/Narrative Designer Novera King in a 30-minute lecture that details the successes and failures they experienced in ArenaNet's first outreach program.

This lecture is geared toward narrative, HR, and management professionals looking to diversify their staff to improve the creative variety in their content and remain competitive in a global market.
