Ripstone is delighted to support Women In Games as a Corporate Ambassador and help uphold the shared values and goals that we stand for.”
Simone McDermott, Game Designer, offered: “I’m proud to be an Ambassador for Women in Games and be part of Ripstone as a company that advocates for women. With both WiGJ and Ripstone behind me, I feel 100% supported and that I belong in this industry, and I look forward to working with WIGJ to make sure all women feel the same sense of support and belonging in the industry we love.”
Jenny Hurley, Head of People, added: “At Ripstone we don’t just talk about equality, diversity and inclusion, we live it every day and our employees think so too with our recent award nomination in this category. We are delighted to be part of Women in Games to help educate and showcase what women in this exciting industry can achieve.”
Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman said: “We are delighted to have Ripstone on board as a Corporate Ambassador at Women in Games.
