International Women's Day 2023

On #InternationalWomensDay, Lien Tran published an op ed in New Thinking Magazine entitled “Leveraging Tech to Address Gender-Based Violence Impactfully” on how emerging tech, including the VR simulation “A Just Reality” project, can fill a major gap in essential skills training for law enforcement who respond to and investigate sexual assault & domestic violence incidents.

March 8 marks International Women’s Day which is about working toward a gender equal world—free of bias, stereotypes, and discrimination. 


For social impact designers like us at Matters at Play, we have the ability and responsibility to use our creativity, drive, and spirit to envision ways to move us collectively towards a better future.
