Women in Games WIGJ is a not for profit organisation that works to recruit more women into the games industry and to support those already in the industry. It also campaigns to ensure individuals and businesses understand that a more diverse workforce leads to greater productivity and financial success.

Women in Games WIGJ was founded in 2009 as Women in Games Jobs and incorporated as a “not for profit” or Community Interest Company in 2011. The organisation is called Women in Games, but our legal name is Women in Games WIGJ – without any brackets, which mean Women in Games can be abbreviated to WIGJ. The organisation is no longer called Women in Games Jobs.
