Women in Games is pleased to announce the appointment of Jocasta Kelsey as Marketing Director. Jocasta is a former Marketing Director for We R Interactive. She now works as a commercial consultant specialising in helping start-up, early stage and established businesses to achieve their potential. She has worked across a number of sectors including not for profit, immersive tech and gaming. Jocasta joins the 5 person, part time Executive Board that meets monthly to manage strategically the day-to-day activities of the organisation.

WIGJ has also appointed 3 new Advisory Board members.
Dr Sharon Tolaini-Sage is a Lecturer at Norwich University of the Arts who specialises in lecturing on the cultural, contextual and storytelling aspects of digital games. Already a successful Women in Games Ambassador, she has supported the organisation for a number of years.
Mark Eyles was until recently a Principal Lecturer and Section Leader in the School of Creative Technologies at the University of Portsmouth. He also founded the first Women in Games Conference in the UK in 2004. He remains an Educational Advisor to TIGA and has just launched his own studio, Ambient Quest Studios.
Angela Natividad joins to bring her esports expertise to the organisation. She has worked in advertising for over 15 years, both in agencies and as a journalist. In 2015 she co-founded Hurrah, the leading esports advertising agency, with the goal of attracting non-endemic clients to the space and helping the sector grow sustainably toward the mainstream. She also plays an international relations role for France Esports.

Marie-Claire Isaaman, CEO of Women in Games commented. “We welcome Jocasta, Angela, Sharon and Mark to the team. It is important for Women in Games to market itself consistently, at the highest level. Much of what we do has gone unreported and therefore unnoticed due to lack of this resource. Jocasta brings us extensive experience in not for profit and technology marketing and we look forward to her helping us professionalise our messaging moving forward. The addition of Sharon and Mark reflects the commitment of Women in Games in supporting the Games Education sector to collaborate more closely and effectively with Games Development. We plan further exciting initiatives in esports and Angela will help us impact and lead in this growing field.”
