Women in Games Scotland appoints new lead ambassador and national coordinator

UK non-profit organisation Women in Games WIGJ has appointed Rockstar North engine programmer Timea Tabori as its new lead ambassador and national coordinator for Women in Games Scotland.

Tabori has worked at Rockstar North since 2013 and is also a member of the board of directors of IGDA Scotland. She will work to promote diversity in the region by collaborating with regional trade bodies and representing Women in Games.

The organisation has also appointed Roll7 producer Rachael Gregg-Smythe as the regional coordinator for the North West. She will respond to requests from women in games in region and work closely with local network Gameopolis.

Spreading the word

"Promoting diversity is a cause that has been close to my heart from the very start of my career in the games industry and I am eager to take on this challenge and continue to serve this goal," said Tabori.

"We have some exciting plans going forward and I am always open to questions and inquiries. Say hi or drop me an email if you're a woman based in Scotland already in games or looking to get started, if you're organising an event and looking for speakers, a company looking to recruit more diverse talent or just want to find out what the Women in Games Ambassadors are all about."

Women in Games WIGJ established its Ambassador program back in March 2017. At the time, it had 43 women in the UK and Europe acting as ambassadors – it now has a team of 53.
