The Electronic Gaming Federation To Launch 'EGF Leads' Series For Collegiate Esports Leadership

Weekly peer to peer online event to help unite and discuss all areas of growth and leadership around the community of collegiate esports and gaming
NEW YORK - Jan. 28, 2021 - PRLog -- The Electronic Gaming Federation, the national governing body for formalized collegiate D-I esports and high school level leagues, will host a series of panels on topics in collegiate esports ranging from team management to mental health beginning on February 3rd for member colleges and universities across the country to engage in information sharing to their esports and gaming communities. The event is open to all faculty, coaches and students as a way to bring together the fluid and fast rising world of gaming across college campuses. The event is free and will be streamed on each Wednesday at 2PM ET.

"The esports and gaming communities across the country continue to grow, but the market, as happens with many startup industries, can be very siloed and fractured, our goal is to bring together like minded individuals with one purpose; to share best practices and learn from each other,"  said EGF CEO Eric Johnson. "For esports to continue to grow holistically, we need consistency and we believe this is a great next step."

EGF Leads is one of the first major projects initiated by the recently elected EGFC Board of Governors under the leadership of Michele King (William & Mary) and Courtney James (DePaul University). "I am excited to see how EGF Leads allows students to learn to lead from industry leaders and staff professionals at EGF Member Institutions. EGF has established itself as an industry leader when it comes to competitive play; and the expansion of EGF Leads will allow the Federation to be a industry leader when it comes to co-curricular leadership development for students involved in the Esports & gaming community."  - Courtney James, Director of Student Involvement & Esports, DePaul University

The goal of this series of panels and educational sessions will be to have students learn from peers, industry leaders and member institution staff and faculty about topics pertaining to leadership, communication and more.

"EGF's strength is in its leadership and active participation of its member institutions.  What better way to enable our students to grow and to develop than to offer EGF Leads--a weekly panel discussion on topics relevant to the esports ecosystem.  We believe in integrity and transparency, so we want all esports community members to join in the discussion as we learn from schools across the country and industry leaders." --Michele King, Ph.D., Director of Esports at William & Mary

EGF will start the second half of EGFC Season 2 on February 1 with more than 40 schools, and will have conference and national championships starting in March.
