Women in Games welcomes Abertay University as a Founding Educational Ambassador following the announcement of the program in July 2020. Abertay University maintains a high standard for its commitment to education in the video games space and provides innovative, relevant and future focussed programmes.

Dr Dayna Galloway (Head of Games & Arts) and Prof Ruth Falconer (Head of Games Technology & Maths) stated: “We fully support the vital work that Women In Games champions to ensure that the games industry is a place where diverse voices and talent can emerge and flourish. By joining the educational ambassadors program we are committed to creating events, opportunities and conversations that lead to a positive impact in the industry and across wider games culture.”
