Welcome New Ambassadors!

Meet our newest Ambassadors - June 2021


This week Women in Games puts on it’s first Ambassador Only Event, where ambassadors from each of our programmes, Individual, Corporate and Education will meet, network, share knowledge and learn from each other. Also this week we are proud to announce and welcome our newest cohort of Individual Ambassadors.

Our Ambassador Programme is an ecosystem which links organisations, individuals and the educational sector together, all who want to engage and support Women in Games in its mission, to achieve full parity of opportunity and equity of treatment for all women and female-identifying persons working, or wanting to work, in the games industry and esports.

The Individual Ambassador Programme – has grown to over 400 individual ambassadors and is active in 52 countries. Our Individual Ambassadors create clusters of events and initiatives in their local and global communities which is vital to communicating and raising awareness of our mission to achieve full parity of opportunity and equity of treatment for all women and female-identifying persons working, or wanting to work, in the games industry and esports. 

So this month, we proudly announce the following 33 individuals from across the globe. They bring with them a wealth of knowledge, experience and unique perspectives along with their local networks that enhance and progress the mission and work of Women in Games.
