The Women in Games Annual Global Conference takes place next week, on Tuesday October 10th, which is also Ada Lovelace Day and World Mental Health Awareness Day.

We hope to welcome as many of you as possible to this important event. Tickets are just £30 for a full day (8am to 10pm) of inspiring talks and discussions, plus unrivalled networking opportunities. The event is virtual, allowing us to bring women and allies together from around the world. And all delegates will have the opportunity to watch sessions that they missed – for up to six months – via our Replay function.

There are still huge challenges facing women working in games and esports, and women and girls playing games online. Our work at Women in Games is to address these significant challenges, and look to find solutions. Our Annual Global Conference provides us with the chance to ask difficult questions, to disrupt – in the hope of collectively seeking answers.

Women in Games’ continuing mantra is that no-one should be disadvantaged because they are a woman, and our speakers will share their perspectives on how and why their efforts at disrupting the status quo are a reason for optimism about positive change in the worlds of games, esports and beyond.

I would like to thank our sponsors Dovetail Games and Rockstar and our supporters Amiqus, Keywords Studios, Maverick Games, nDreams and Redhill Games. Their support is invaluable in enabling us to create events like this for our community.

Meanwhile, I’m delighted to share the news that, following the onboarding of our recent cohort, we now have 1,634 Individual Women in Games Amassadors in 75 countries, including individuals in Albania and Iraq for the first time. You can find out more about them here – welcome all!

I look forward to seeing you all at our Conference on Tuesday.
