Karen McLoughlin, Group Director of HR at Sumo Group commented “Sumo Group is delighted to support the Women in Games Global Conference and the Global Games Awards as main sponsor. We would like to encourage as many entries as possible before the deadline of 26th of August.”

Women in Games is also delighted to announce a partnership with The Fair Play Alliance which comprises over 160 gaming companies today, all united in our mission to identify, define, and enable awesome player interactions, fair play, and healthy communities in online games. The Fair Play Alliance has been asked to present the Global Games Gender Diversity Initiative of the Year award. This award is particularly relevant to all FPA members who are actively working to reduce the level of disruption in games, especially those where there is an element of harm based on gender identity. Members of the FPA are encouraged to participate by nominating individuals or companies working on the very important topic of ridding games from harm and harassment based on gender identity.

Marie-Claire Isamaan, CEO of Women in Games said, “We welcome both Sumo Digital and the Fair Play Alliance to our new Global Games Awards. Both organisations are committed to improving diversity and a more equitable global games industry. We could not put on this event without their support together with the conference grant from Innovate UK.”

The closing date for entries is 26th August at 6.00pm BST, 1.00pm EST, 10.00am PST. Please enter at our dedicates Awards site at https://womeningames.awardsplatform.com/
