Women in Games picks up prestigious awards

Congratulations to our friends and allies at Women in Games who have received two accolades in the recent 20th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.

Women in Games

Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman has been named the winner of a Silver Stevie Award in the Female Executive of the Year – Government or Non-Profit –10 or Less Employees category.

At the same time, Women in Games has been presented with a Bronze Stevie Award in the Organization of the Year – Government or Non-Profit– 10 or Less Employees.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honour the achievements of women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run worldwide.

Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for ‘crowned’, the awards were presented to winners during a gala event attended by nominees and their guests at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City earlier this month.

More than 1,600 entries were submitted this year for consideration in over 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year. 

Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman was presented with the Silver Stevie Award for her work spearheading a gender diversity organisation that has a significant impact on women working in games internationally. Since taking on the role as CEO, she has taken the organisation from being run by volunteers in the UK, to a globally recognised body.

Women in Games received a Bronze Stevie Award for the impressive growth of the organisation over the past two years, with the number of Individual Ambassadors increasing to 1,600+ in over 70 countries. The organisation’s events – most free to attend – were also highlighted, the opening of the Women in Games Asia Chapter, and the publication of the Women in Games Guide: Building A Fair Playing Field.

Women in Games CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman said: “For Women in Games to have been recognised within these incredibly prestigious awards is a great honour – but also testament to the passion and dedication of our small team, and our wider community of Ambassadors, Corporate Ambassadors and Education Ambassadors. Our goal is to create a fair, equitable and safe space for women and girls in games, and we are committed to drive forward in our activities and initiatives in 2024 and beyond.

“I am also delighted and honoured to have received a Silver Stevie Award myself. My personal goals align with those of Women in Games and I will continue to lead the organisation in supporting women and girls in games around the world.”
