Ahead of International Women’s Day on 8th March 2023, British Esports diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiative, Women in Esports, is pleased to reveal an identity refresh alongside a brand new Manifesto and Key Pillars. Read the full press release.

The Women in Esports initiative, represented by a series of talented individuals including Alice Leaman and Bryony-Hope Green, who today won an MCV Women in Games Award for Education Impact, and Journalism Impact respectively, aims to create a more diverse and inclusive space in esports. Since its inception in 2019, the initiative has organised various events, tournaments, community initiatives, and educational content to encourage and provide opportunities for women and marginalised groups to participate in esports at all levels.

Women in Esports four Key Pillars include:

We understand that long term improvement in underrepresentation can only be achieved through clear education that addresses diversity and inclusivity in esports.

We actively engage with individuals to participate and excel in the dynamic and rapidly evolving esports industry, highlighting the many career pathways and opportunities across all sectors.

We believe in empowering individuals to seize opportunities for growth and development in esports, while championing supportive environments that encourage free expression and creativity.

As experts in diversity, equity and inclusion, we consider it our responsibility to share our knowledge and insights with key stakeholders throughout esports, in order to encourage positive change and foster a more diverse and inclusive environment.

For a full breakdown of the Key Pillars and the focus behind each one, please visit Women in Esports.

As part of a week-long activation celebrating International Women’s Day, Women in Esports will be running the ‘Centre Stage’ campaign, highlighting women and marginalised genders in the esports industry through a series of spotlight content, interviews and charity streams.   

Kicking off today (March 1st 2023), the campaign will also be raising donations for Womankind Worldwide, a global women’s rights organisation working in partnership with women’s movements to transform the lives of women and girls.
