About Us

Welcome! Women in Games Argentina is a networking community for professionals and enthusiasts in the video game industry, bringing together women, trans, and non-binary individuals from Argentina. Our primary mission is to work towards a more inclusive video game industry through several concrete actions: raising awareness, educating, and creating access and work opportunities for traditionally disadvantaged groups and minorities. Diversity also means understanding and showcasing the different roles within the industry, from game development and production to its marketing, dissemination, conservation, and study as a cultural product. That's why we see ourselves as a collective that brings together and invites everyone who is part of the processes involved in the value chain in some way: from developers, professional esports players, journalists, translators, artists, streamers, art curators, and lawyers. Everyone who chooses to participate in the gaming experience has a place in the industry! Moreover, we value the potential of video games as a creative source for economic growth, with an Argentine industry that is constantly developing, creating jobs and opportunities.

F.A.Q

Do you have any questions? Maybe someone else has had the same inquiry.
Here's a compilation of common questions. Didn't find what you were looking for?
Feel free to send us an email, and we'll respond as soon as possible!

If you want to normalize the role of women and diverse groups, why create a separate group?

We know that, due to historical tradition, video games (like most areas of technology) were encouraged as a male activity. Fortunately, over time, that myth has been deconstructed, and we realize that ALL of us can engage in this. However, there is still a lot of toxicity and people who do not understand that video games and the disciplines surrounding them have NO gender. That’s why we have a community to share experiences that are often made invisible elsewhere. But we hope the day will come when we can all be part of the same community without fear or suffering toxic attitudes rooted in the gender we identify with!

Is WIGAr a special group because the gaming world is completely sexist and toxic?

No. Just as it happens in other arts, it's not that cinema or music are toxic in themselves as a means of expression, but there are many people who take advantage of this form of expression to replicate their harmful attitudes. If we believed that video games promote violence, we wouldn’t be part of this collective. Are there people who help preserve the idea that video games are sexist? Yes. But that’s why we’re here, to show that there are people who have different opinions and fight for video games to be a free and healthy space.

Why do you talk about diversity as something important in video games?

As a cultural product and narrative medium, video games tell stories we can feel a part of while playing. If the creators of these stories are always the same, many voices are lost and many stories go untold. Diversity means that many different people can express themselves through video game creation, so that many players can find themselves represented in them!

I'm under 18 years old but I love video games. Can I join?

Women in Games Argentina has a sub-18 division called Girls in Games Argentina, where topics, opportunities, and issues more closely related to that age group are addressed, creating an environment where younger members can feel comfortable among a group of peers.

Are all members of the group spokespeople for the community?

No. WIGAr operates as a community represented by different committees. There is the Board of Directors, the Events Committee, the Communications Committee, the Education Committee and the E-sports Committee. If you want to check whether you are truly speaking with a spokesperson from WIGAr, don't hesitate to contact us via email.

I want to interview you or invite WIGAr to participate in an event or activity. How do I proceed?

Please send us an email at womeningamesar@gmail.com telling us about the initiative and how you expect us to participate. If you contact us through social media, we will also ask you to send the email.

If I am not a game developer or programmer… can I be part of WIGAr?

Of course you can. One of our goals is to highlight the multidisciplinary scope of video games. It's not just about people who work with hardcore code; we also need artists, UX designers, streamers, gamers, journalists, PR professionals, translators, writers, and more. As a multidisciplinary field, there are many roles that help build the industry.

I want to make a video game; can I hire you?

We are not a video game studio; we are an organization. You can find people from the community in the community section.
