Founded in 2005, WIGI supports the inclusion and advancement of women in the global games industry. WIGI has grown to include advocacy for industry diversity, leadership through educational programs, outreach programs and initiatives, and career impact with networking opportunities.
WIGI promotes diversity
in video game development, publishing, media, education and workplaces. WIGI is driven by a fundamental belief that increased diversity, equality and camaraderie among genders can make global impacts for exceptional products, increased consumer enjoyment and a stronger game industry.
Statistics still show that women make up 18% to 25% of the workforce in the total global industry.
WIGI events, memberships, and boards are open to all respectful individuals of all genders who support our cause. WIGI’s reason-for-being is to promote diversity, equality and inclusivity.
WIGI is a 501c(3) charity. Our Executive, Advisory, and Regional Chapters Boards are made of industry professionals who serve on a volunteer basis. Membership is free. The organization and events are funded by corporate sponsorships and individual donations.
