SPORTS INTERACTIVE KICKS OFF NEW ALLIANCE WITH WOMEN IN GAMES
Football Manager creator Sports Interactive has signed up as a Women in Games Corporate Ambassador.
The sports sim specialist joins the growing portfolio of 50+ Women in Games Ambassadors. The studio took part in the recent Women in Games Careers & Networking Expo and sponsored the Community Track of our Annual Conference which included a session by Yvonne Harris, CEO of Women in Football.
“We are delighted to enter into this partnership with Women in Games, which we believe is an important step in our ongoing journey towards becoming a more diverse and inclusive studio,” said Sports Interactive’s People and HR Director, Jemma Osborne (pictured). “We hope, through this partnership, to help in the ongoing initiatives to bring more women into gaming in general and to Sports Interactive in particular. Also, we are very keen to make full use of the networking opportunities that this partnership will deliver – not only to assist in our efforts to attract more women to the studio, but also to empower and elevate those extraordinary women who already form an integral part of the SI team.”
Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman added: “We’re delighted that Sports Interactive has joined Women in Games as a Corporate Ambassador. The studio has already demonstrated a commitment to gender diversity and inclusion – underpinning the importance of the representation of women in the games themselves following the integration of women’s football into Football Manager. We know that the studio is also actively looking to attract more women to its teams, which supports our mission. We look forward to working with Sports Interactive on our aligned goals for women in the games industry, and those who play them.”
