Patricia Becker Pay It Forward Award 

Each year during Kick Up Your Heels we honor industry women who have truly given back to their community with the Patricia Becker Pay It Forward Award. The award is given to women who support other women in the gaming industry by volunteering on GGW committees, assisting women within their organization by promoting GGW events and classes, organizing regional programs, chairing a lean in circle, or adding to GGW by creating a new outreach program. It is hoped that women who have graduated from a GGW pyramid class, and specifically the W Development Program, will elect to pay it forward in new and innovative ways. 

The award is presented with a bracelet and a card inscribed: 

With gratitude, GGW presents you with this bracelet made of champagne quartz stones. Quartz signifies power, energy, and clarity. The circle of stones represents the continuity of friends and support in GGW.  The stiletto shoe charm is solid 14 karat yellow gold characterizing your commitment and strength in leading the way. Diamonds can withstand enormous pressure; they represent your strength and brilliance. Thank you for your contribution to GGW, women, and your community. You epitomize someone who has paid it forward.  You have made a difference; it is acknowledged and appreciated.
