We empower people to challenge and counter persistently high levels of gender inequality and discrimination by providing a safe space to socially connect, exchange knowledge and perspectives to activate change.
We celebrate and showcase the work and talent of women throughout the sector providing unique opportunities for our ambassadors to contribute to: our conference, our events, our awards, our research and our community and celebrate innovation.
What are Ambassadors expected to do?
Ambassadors are expected to reach out to:
- Young women at school, college and university and encourage them to consider the games industry and esports as a career
- Industry & educational leaders and local government in their region to form long term strategic partnerships
- All allies, women, men and non-binary people, in order to grow the Women in Games community and network.
Ambassadors Event Fund
We have an Ambassadors Event Fund that can provide support for ambassadors to put on an event or instigate an initiative.
We are open to ALL ideas – Ambassadors can collaborate with one another and we welcome innovative and impactful proposals.
Previously run events have included: social meet-ups, workshops, portfolio and CV reviews, coffee breaks, company presentations, school presentations. Events and initiatives can be hosted anywhere and any how! Online, inside company environments, universities, schools, at events and, of course, in more social spaces!
The funding amount is variable dependent on the activity. The maximum available for an event is £500. A proposal including full costing must be submitted before the event takes place. This will go through a review and approval process.
The Ambassador Event Fund is revised and renewed annually.
