WIGJ announce evening European Advocacy Awards and call for conference speakers and sponsors
Women in Games WIGJ is pleased to announce that the European Games Advocacy Awards and WIGJ Party will take place on the Tuesday 11th September at a venue near to City, University of London.
Women in Games wishes to recognise the Advocates for Change in the European Games sector.
WIGJ has a 10 year history of advocacy but many more causes beyond diversity are now being discussed and promoted. A number of outstanding Advocates will be invited by WIGJ to present to delegates at the conference and attend a ceremony in the evening where the Awards will be presented. The evening will continue with a networking Party to which both conference delegates and local game developers will be invited. These are new events and partners are now being sought to make these a success.
David Smith, Founder of WIGJ commented, “WIGJ wishes to recognise the importance of the many causes and the individuals behind these causes. An evening event also lets us celebrate the achievements of the last year and thank our many supporters and allies. Look out for more announcements for this years conference and get involved! Sign up to speak and get your friends and work colleagues lined up to join us.”
