The Women in Games Ambassador programme, originally sponsored by Google’s Women Techmakers, now has 74 individual Ambassadors from across the UK, Europe and the USA supporting women and girls in understanding the games industry and the opportunities there are within it. The programme exists to grow the membership of the organisation, to help it increase the reach and scale of its programmes and help it achieve the strategic goal of doubling the number of women in games over 10 years.
