Last month, Kasia Moczarska, Regional Employee Communication Manager for Europe for Keywords Studios – which powers our Ambassador Programme (and also, a Women in Games Ambassador herself) and her colleague, LQA Project Manager Nicola Pawlak were speakers at the EU Talent Fair during the EuroScience Open Forum conference in Katowice, Poland.

They discussed how female talent can enhance diversity and bring new perspectives to the video games industry. Kasia and Nicola also shared various initiatives driven by Keywords Studios to attract female talent.

Kasia explained: “Our colleagues had the opportunity to present the Women in Games mission and talk about the partnership between WIG and Keywords Studios, highlighting the shared goal of shaping the games industry by tackling gender inequality and addressing underrepresentation.”

The European Talent Fair was aimed at early-stage academics and people interested in taking up research work. The event has a goal of bringing together students, early career researchers, scholars, start-ups, industry and investors to promote young people’s talent and job opportunities in the research sector across the EU.

Kasia added: “2024 marks the third year of our partnership with Women in Games as sponsor of the Individual Ambassador programme. We continue to collaborate on this important work, helping the Individual Ambassador community which is now over 2,000-strong globally. In 2023, Keywords supported Women in Games across a number of events, including the WIG Individual Ambassador event and the WIG Annual Conference.

“These events offer opportunities for development, knowledge exchange, and networking – enhancing Ambassadors’ abilities to make change in their organisations and in the industry.”
