The 1,000 Dreams Fund is doing its part to help women build their esports careers. The national nonprofit supports the dreams of talented young women by providing funding, mentorship and other resources. It has partnered with Allied Esports, Harman International Industries and HyperX to bring women gamers from across the country to Las Vegas for a behind-the-scenes look at how esports tournaments are produced.
A recently released study by the American Gaming Association and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation finds the gaming industry considers charitable giving a pillar of its business practice and philosophy, and Las Vegas companies are leading in this space.
The nonprofit Get Outdoors Nevada, funded by various local governmental entities and businesses, hosts scores of volunteer activities like these each year to help connect locals and visitors — nerds and non-nerds alike — with outdoor spaces in Southern Nevada.
