Register your interest now to receive information on our upcoming WGA events.
Women in Gaming Australasia is committed to bringing you more exciting, educational and informative events. Our programs will raise awareness, provoke thought, drive change and develop your network within the gaming industry.
Following on from the successful launch of 'Step Forward' in Sydney last November, WGA is bringing Step Forward to Brisbane, the Gold Coast and Melbourne in April.
Step Forward includes a Professional Development session, a topical panel discussion on male allies and the role they play in gender equality and an opportunity to network with others in the industry.
Professional Development - Fail Forward
It's not about failing; it's about learning and growing as a leader. Attendees will explore the consequences of fear and failure and the impact a fixed versus growth mind-set can have on your ability to take risks. You will learn how to mitigate those risks by forming a safety net that enables you to jump into the unknown and achieve extraordinary things.
Panel - Gender Equality in the Workplace - Why it's a Shared Responsibility.
Given the higher proportion of men in leadership, as well as the lower participation of men in parental leave and flexible work, it is critical to engage them in conversations around workplace inclusion, their role in driving change and their commitment to ensuring women’s representation in leadership is elevated.
This panel of influential male and female leaders will discuss the importance of gender equality and inclusion in the workplace, why it’s a shared responsibility and the demonstrable progress being made within their places of work.

"What most inspired me was the panelists' humility - their willingness to admit they don't have all the answers, yet are committed to learning from the women they work with.
I think it was empowering for the women who attended the event to learn that many male leaders are eager to support their careers and are open to feedback."

"I couldn’t be more excited about the role and contribution WGA is playing in bringing into focus the untapped potential of empowering and developing women in in the industry.
This focus is importantly backed up by tangible and sincere efforts to educate and support both men and women to bring about the kind of change that is long overdue.
I welcome the involvement and support of all men in the industry who have both a responsibility and opportunity to empower and inspire women to reach their full potential."
Managing Director, DDI Australia
“I had the pleasure of participating in the Male Leaders of Change Panel as part of the inaugural ‘Step Forward’ event. These events are essential to increase industry awareness and support the development and success of women in the gaming community.
It is vital that we recognise the importance of the Women in Gaming Australasia initiative to drive change and create a more attractive and inclusive industry.
It is also encouraging to see a platform being provided for women and their allies to network with like-minded professionals and I applaud the increase in industry awareness that we have seen already.
We have a responsibility and opportunity to support, empower and inspire women to reach their potential and I encourage as many men and women as possible working in the Gaming Industry to contribute to, and participate in this important initiative.”
