What WGJ means
to you?

Slide1

Being able to bring a community together and share experience is what excites me to work on the Jam. Being able to shine a light on diversity in games and get more people excited and engaged in the industry is what I hope this event will help contribute to.

Ashley
Slide2

Games as they are now have the technicality, creativity, and passion of women to thank, and nowhere is this better demonstrated than WGJ.

Holly
Slide3

WGJ event allows us to find as many ways as possible to encourage women and marginalised genders to enter our industry. It's a great way for people to express their creativity & meet other people with similar interests.

Raelene
Slide4

I’m interested in the WGJ event because I believe there is such a gender ratio difference within the tech and games industry. Creating communities is a key step forward to allowing marginalised genders to collaborate and lift each other up..

Sav
Slide5

Games should be for everyone, and anyone gatekeeping that, is an idiot. WGJ is a chance to show what an incredible, diverse and creative industry game dev can be and encourage and support those who may be put off, to consider it as a viable career.

Paul Miskimmon
Slide6

I want to help promote diversity in the games industry and be a part of a wonderful program that provides opportunities for those of us who are traditionally underrepresented in the industry
