PRESS FORWARD SUMMIT
WIGI is proud to partner with Evil Geniuses to launch PRESS FORWARD, a diversity, equity, and inclusion summit for women in gaming.
Kicking off on April 24th, the first event in the series will blend career-focused sessions from esports professional gamers, game designers, entrepreneurs from Riot Games, 343 Industries, and more. In addition to panels and keynotes, the online event will feature resume review, recruiter feedback, and networking over breakout sessions and interactive activities.
Aimed at young women who are looking to educate themselves on career opportunities in the gaming industry or to add fuel to existing career paths, the event will feature attendance from recruiters at multiple game companies to participate in panel discussions and offer tips on career development.
YOUR HOUR, HER POWER
Throughout the month of March, Women in Games International in partnership with Dress for Success Worldwide is celebrating Women's History Month with the Your Hour, Her Power campaign.
WIGI's goal is to promote the inclusion, advancement, and retention of women in the global games industry. With a focus on women's equality as well as equity and opportunity, we have taken the pledge to empower women through participating in the 31 Days of Women in Power campaign.
Please join us not only to celebrate women but to take action in advancing equality by donating the equivalent of just one hour of pay (or any amount) to empower a woman. With your help, we can reach our goal of $25K to aid women worldwide.
