ISFE becomes the latest Corporate Ambassador for Women in Games

Women in Games welcomes ISFE as Corporate Ambassadors

Since 1998, ISFE has ensured that the voice of a responsible games ecosystem is heard and understood, that its creative and economic potential is supported and celebrated, and that players around the world continue to enjoy great video game playing experiences. ISFE represents the interests of Europe’s – and the world’s – most successful, creative and most innovative game publishers and developers.

ISFE CEO Simon Little said: “It is essential that the industry strives to reflect gender equality in its workforce and in the video games themselves. Women currently represent only 30% of the workforce in the digital sector in the EU and, according to national surveys, 28% of workers in the video game sector are female.[1] We look forward to working with Women in Games to drive and promote good practice across Europe for the good of both the industry and the playing community.”

Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman said: “We are delighted that ISFE has joined Women in Games as Corporate Ambassadors. They have partnered with us at a pivotal moment of growth as our global reach expands. There are multiple ways we will work together across education, policy and business to support our vision and female community of practice, which is represented in 41 countries and growing. We are thrilled to have the European voice of trade associations for developers and publishers with us for the event.”
