Women In Games WIGJ is pleased to announce a partnership with 2K in an effort to encourage career opportunities for women in the games industry, and foster diverse and inclusive hiring efforts across the publisher and its development studios. Starting at the European Women in Games Conference at City, University of London Sept. 11-12, 2K and Hangar 13 are kicking off a long-term partnership with Women in Games.
“Women in Games is a fantastic organization that’s been instrumental in supporting diversity in the games industry for nearly 10 years,” said Melissa Bell, Senior Vice President and Head of Global Marketing at 2K. “We hope this partnership leads to more women joining the development and marketing teams at 2K and Hangar 13, but our goal is to support women in the industry at large.”
Hangar 13 – one of 2K’s leading AAA development studios – is sponsoring and hosting several events and speakers at the European Women in Games Conference, in addition to presenting at the European Advocacy Awards and staging a recruitment booth at the event. Hangar 13 recently opened a new office in Brighton, UK in addition to offices in Novato, California and two in the Czech Republic, and is now focused on a recruitment and hiring push to support their recently confirmed in-development new IP.
