Announcement:  Partnership with AnyKey

AnyKey is a new partnership between ESL and Intel to support and grow inclusivity in e-sports, and our own T.L. Taylor is part of the team. Though the project was just announced, CCI already has been involved by conducting research and field work with industry stakeholders and at live events. AnyKey will be supporting the women’s tournament at the Intel Challenge CSGO tournament, where there will be an AnyKey lounge.

For more of T.L. Taylor's work on e-sports, check out her book, Raising The Stakes.

You can learn more about AnyKey on their website and on Twitter.
