Suzanne Seggerman is Co-founder and former President of Games for Change (G4C) a non-profit and new movement promoting a new genre of videogames: games that engage players in the most pressing issues of our day: climate change, poverty, global conflicts. Called "the Sundance of video games" for "socially-conscious game makers", G4C has worked with a variety of high impact partners to foster and shape this new genre, including Microsoft, mTV, AMD and a variety of NGOs. Suzanne recently won a MacArthur Foundation's Digital Media and Learning Competition award. Before co-founding G4C, Suzanne was a director at NYC-based new media think tank Web Lab, where she co-curated 'Provocations', the first national exhibition featuring digital games about social issues. Her background in online media includes community-oriented interactive environments and the design of non-traditional games, which earned her awards from New Voices New Visions and Communications Arts. Before her involvement with new media, she worked in documentary film including on the Ken Burns/Stephen Ives PBS series "The West" and as Co-producer of "Race For Life," a humanitarian aid and documentary film about environmental issues in Eastern Europe.
