What does WGJ mean
to you?

Is an opportunity to change the reality of the gaming industry. The event provides a welcoming environment for women who are starting in the field and a sense of belonging to women who are already have more experience.

Alice

A place of change, welcoming, strengthening and empowerment of the dev community, especially for women and girls who want to enter in the field. The Women Game Jam is a real possibility to make the dev scene more diverse and welcoming.

Ana

The Women Game Jam enhances the opportunities for women in the games industry. It's a space for sharing, affection, and an amazing networking.

Anny Caroline

All this sharing between women from various locations working together to build something makes me very happy! The two pillars that define the experiences that I seek for my life are: to explore and to connect. And I think the WGJ is an event that allows and encourages it in the game devs community.

Carolina

Much more than a women community , it’s the future of the gaming industry.

Cristiane Jade

For me, WGJ is a diverse space to talk and share ideas with other women in the area in a safe way, where I know I will be listened to regardless of circumstances.

Fernanda Shimada

WGJ was my first contact with Jams, it was where I felt safe to try without fear of making mistakes, without fear of giving my opinion and being myself. It was my gateway to a new world, the world I always dreamed of, full of people who respect, support, and care for one another. Today I see WGJ as a space for self-knowledge, full of challenges and rewards, where we can find that super fun group that makes things happen and that warms our hearts.

Giovanna Lopes

The WGJ is an ongoing challenge that has made me really take responsibility, learn and mature in the games career.

Jeanine

The Women Game Jam for me is a place of union. It's where women and non-binary people realize we are in a larger number than we thought in the development market and that we can support others like us to follow these professions.

Lizy

Women Game Jam is an opportunity to leverage dreams. While we connect with other people with the same goal of making games in an environment full of representativeness and inclusiveness.

Luísa Cecília Pinto

A place where everyone can learn that they can and deserve to express themselves through any media.

Mariana

For me WGJ was a transformative experience. Since I participated in the 2018 edition I realized I wanted to be part of the construction and expansion of the event. I want more women around the world to have the opportunity to live the experience I lived at the event.
