With a busy year ahead, we have extended our team and are delighted to welcome Mafalda Duarte, Lauren Kaye and Fida Zourob to the Women in Games organisation.

Some of you will know Lauren Kaye (pictured left) from her brilliant podcast She Plays Games, which celebrates women in games. She is also a host and presenter for brands including GinxTV and Into Games, and has spoken at Women in Games events previously. We’re honoured that she has joined us to cover our Marketing Manager’s maternity leave.

Mafalda Duarte (pictured right) joins us as Women in Games Ambassador Co-Ordinator. She is also the Managing Director and a Producer at Nerd Monkeys, an indie game development studio based in Lisbon, Portugal. She is a proud Ambassador for Women in Games, and an activist for the Portuguese game development ecosystem through her volunteer work at Ludoteca and action in digital communities.

And our new Women in Games Discord Manager is Fida Zourob (pictured centre). Fida has previously founded and managed a global community for gamers, and has helped to empower women in technology as branch manager for the She Codes organisation. Today she is a Senior Community Manager for Show!, which helps video game streamers to make more money.

A warm welcome to all!
