Announced during an interactive livestream hosted by popular Twitch creator Tina Degenhart (@ShadowFoxTV), the 50 BroadcastHER Grant recipients represent a diverse array of emerging talent in the burgeoning esports, gaming and live broadcasting industry. Recipients stream from different parts of the world, including North America, Europe, Asia, South America and Australia.

“Playing and streaming games has emerged as a powerful global industry,” said 1DF founder and CEO, Christie Garton. “The support of partners like Twitch and members of its community as well as technology powerhouse HARMAN is giving us the global reach and scale to impact young women in places like Russia, Brazil and Argentina, as well as here in the United States with dreams of pursuing careers in this important industry.”

The 1DF BroadcastHER Initiative grew out of the financial funding gap for young women in the ever-expanding gaming and broadcasting space. The 1DF BroadcastHER Grants are funded in part by the nearly $50,000 raised by 30 female Twitch creators during the 1DF Streams for Dreams charity event hosted on Twitch in March 2018.

Applications Now Open for BroadcastHER Academy – Powered by HARMAN

Given the popularity of gaming and streaming, 1DF and its partners are finding new ways to support the careers of women in this rapidly growing sector. 1,000 Dreams Fund was joined by David Glaubke, Director of Communications, HARMAN, to open applications for the new BroadcastHER Academy – Powered by HARMAN, which will run from October 2018 to September 2019. Announced at the E3 Expo in June, HARMAN has committed to fund $1,000 scholarships to 24 established female broadcasters that create educational content that inspires others to pursue opportunities in streaming and gaming and across the live video broadcast marketplace. All BroadcastHER Academy grant recipients will also receive a pair of JBL Everest 710 Wireless headphones.

“HARMAN has very ambitious diversity and inclusion goals that aim to create opportunities for women of all levels across our global enterprise,” explains Glaubke.  “The 1,000 Dreams Fund BroadcastHER Academy utilizes a similar approach, encouraging women to educate and empower other future leaders.”
