Who We Are
Women in Games International (WIGI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a mission to cultivate resources to advance economic equality and diversity in the global games industry.
Turning Interest Into Action
When women weren't recognized for their contributions in the past, they were often omitted from history altogether. Since our inception in 2005, Women in Games International has been committed to investing our expertise and resources to highlight and celebrate women making an impact in the global games industry.
WIGI utilizes seasoned industry professionals to activate and empower a global community of women and allies. Our WIGI Weekly newsletter is distributed to thousands of gaming professionals, promoting our mission, highlighting meaningful partnerships, and elevating job opportunities within the industry.
By cultivating resources such as advanced knowledge sharing, access to technology, and actionable mentorship programs, Women in Games International works to normalize diversity in the games industry through increased representation.
Gaming Industry Conferences
Women in Games International creates conference sessions for video game, esports, and tabletop games industry conferences that highlight issues of interest to women, nonbinary, and femme-identifying professionals and their allies. Our conference sessions have covered issues such as how to succeed in a male-dominated workplace, self-advocacy, overcoming imposter syndrome, and how to create diverse content in a globalized market.
