WIGJ Welcomes Gina Jackson As CEO

Posted by GG Goblin On July - 6 - 2012

Women in Games jobs, the not-for-profit company that works to recruit more women into the games industry, have welcomed Gina Jackson, 20 year industry veteran, as Chief Executive.

Gina joined the games industry 20 years ago and has worked for Ocean Software, Kuju, Eidos and Nokia. She now has her own software consultancy specialising in interactive content both in the computer and video games industry and mobile phone applications.

David Smith, Founder of WIGJ, commented. “WIGJ has made great strides since it was founded in 2009 with a network of over 3000 supporters worldwide. The level of awareness of the gender imbalance in the games sector has increased significantly in recent months but there is more that can be done to encourage the recruitment and retention of a more diverse games industry workforce. We think Gina will help bring WIGJ to the next level of becoming a professional membership organisation capable of working with government, trade bodies, employers, those already working in games and job seekers to campaign for a more inclusive games sector for the benefit of the games industry as a whole.”

Gina Jackson commented “I am delighted to take a more active role in WIGJ and I am looking forward to developing partnerships and initiatives across the media sector to ensure that the games industry can attract the best talent at every level. I am excited about celebrating the achievements of women already working in games and inviting many others to join a vibrant, creative and passionate industry.”

You can meet Gina Jackson, David Smith and UKIE CEO, Dr. Jo Twist, at the networking lunch being held on Wednesday 11th July during the Develop conference in Brighton (details of the networking lunch can be found here)
