Billie Purdie, Project Development Lead at British Esports, who also works on the Women in Esports initiative, said:
Women in Esports was established in 2019 in response to the growing levels of toxicity and online abuse aimed at females and marginalised genders. It delivers events, runs tournaments and produces educational content to help grow wider representation within esports.
Women in Esports was also recognised for its efforts in prioritising diversity and inclusivity by GameHERs, having been nominated in the ‘Aspiring Ally Organisation‘.
