Women in Games appoints new CEO

Marie-Claire Isaaman wants to double percentage of women working in the UK game industries by 2025

Marie-Claire Isaaman has been named as the new chief executive of UK diversity non-profit Women In Games.

"I am delighted to be named as the new CEO of Women in Games, an inspirational and increasingly influential organization," she said.

"I recognize the many achievements of my predecessors in the role and am fully committed to realizing the organization's vision of doubling the percentage of women working in the UK game industries by 2025. Ultimately, I want the UK to be a global exemplar for gender equality in making games."

Isaaman was most recently the Subject Leader for MA Games and Senior Lecturer in Digital Innovation and Research at Norwich University of the Arts and she's worked with Women In Games for a number of years.

Last September was the first educator to be inducted into the EA-sponsored European Women in Games Hall of Fame.
