WIGJ now in 28 countries with Ambassadors in Poland, Switzerland, Pakistan, Singapore and Mexico.

Ambassadors meeting at 2019 conference.

Women in Games is pleased to announce the appointment of a further 24 Ambassadors bringing the total to 167. New Ambassadors in Poland, Switzerland, Pakistan, Singapore and Mexico mean that the Women in Games organisation is now represented in 28 different countries. 9 of the 24 new Ambassadors are based outside of Europe as the word continues to spread that there is the opportunity to promote more equality in all game making countries. The Vision of Women in Games is a games industry, culture and community free of gender discrimination, where full equality of opportunity, treatment and conditions empowers all women to achieve their full potential.

Our Ambassadors volunteer to organise a local meeting or event of their choosing in their studio, city or region in the first 12 months and are given some support to do this. 2 Ambassadors can work together to do this.

Ambassador are now shown by region and we welcome, in this new format,  Abbie Dickinson, Kirsten White, Prabjot Rathore and Shariqua Wahid from the North of the UK. We welcome Penny Brammer from the Midlands. From London and the South East, we welcome Backy Saunders, Emma Henry and Melissa Chaplin. From the South of the UK, we welcome Aoife Baines. From mainland Europe, we welcome Asema Hassan, Maria Ivanovic, Raheela Tahir, Ruth Contreras, Tabea Isela (from Switzerland) and Urszula Klimczak (from Poland).

Marie-Claire Isamaan, CEO of Women in Games, commented once again. “Our Ambassadors from across the UK, Europe, North and South America, Africa and Asia will be able to inspire and give support to women and girls in understanding the games industry and the opportunities there are within it. If you are considering a career in games, please reach out to our local and global Ambassadors who will be pleased to give advice specific to their experience.”
