With thanks to our Individual Ambassador Partner, Keywords Studios, Women in Games  are delighted to announce that celebrated authors Shani Orgad and Rosalind Gild – authors of Confidence Culture – will be speaking at this month’s Ambassadors Only event. Our Ambassador Only event is Invite-only for all our Women in Games Ambassadors.

The Ambassadors Only event takes place on Thursday May 19th and brings together all Women in Games Ambassadors for a day of learning, inspiration and networking.

Trina Marshall, Global Director Operational Transformation at Keywords will be speaking with Sharon Tolaini- Sage of Women in Games about Authentic Leadership & Workplace Culture, Neurodiversity & Mental Health and Wellbeing.

Shani Orgad and Rosalind Gill  will discuss their book  Confidence Culture,  which argues that imperatives directed at women to “love your body” and “believe in yourself” imply that psychological blocks rather than entrenched social injustices hold women back. During our event, Orgad and Gill will present their findings and thoughts in a not-to-be missed speaker session.

Elsewhere, the day will feature motivating and energising ‘My Story’ talks from women around the world, and in various disciplines, including:

  • Alexandra Zuhlke, Lead Animator, Klang Games
  • Emily Cook, Art Producer, The Chinese Room
  • Nickie Harper-Williams, Community Manager and Accessibility Consultant
  • Natasha Rooney, Senior Solutions Architect, Amazon Web Services

More speakers and sessions will be announced later this week.

The Ambassadors Only event is – as the name suggests – is dedicated to our Women in Games Ambassadors, and free to attend. All Ambassadors will receive a link to join the virtual event. If you haven’t received one yet, please contact hello@womeningames.org.
