GUILD ESPORTS SHOWCASES WOMEN FOR IWD

Our Corporate Ambassador Guild Esports has highlighted some recent podcasts it has shared to support and showcase women gamers.

Presented by Guild Studios, the In The Lobby podcast sees Harrie Silver, Iain Chambers & Stevie White, alongside industry experts, dive into everything from new game releases, Esports tournaments, blockbusters and more.

And in the run-up to Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day, the organisation is sharing two of its recent podcasts as it works to “pave the way for a better, more inclusive industry that provides opportunity for everyone who loves gaming”.

First up is a discussion with actor, gamer and streamer Anna Demetriou: “The gang discuss how Harrie and Anna’s friendship began from a Twitch raid, the transition from Netflix to livestreaming, and even how her community crowdfunded her setup for Twitch!” – https://youtu.be/8S5GfNPnmWI

Meanwhile, the team is joined by the first black female swimmer to represent Britain at the Olympics – Alice Dearing: “She discusses her gaming background, how her mum got her a PSP 2 years early from Japan, and how she balances gaming and intense olympic training” – https://youtu.be/xa3bJVgZbJ0

Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman said: “It’s great to see our Corporate Ambassador Guild Esports highlighting women gamers, and look forward to seeing more examples of this from the team at Guild’s In The Lobby podcast.”
