Meet the*gameHERs

It’s not often you come across a community with a simple, yet powerful mission.

…until the*gameHERs came along.

Who are they?

A women-led community dedicated to amplifying and centering the voices of women, femme-identifying gamers and non-binary gamers.

After talking with their founders, it became clear how dedicated they are to their mission, and how inspired they were about gamers around the world. As a gamer community ourselves focused on diversity and creativity, we understand how important it is to create inclusive spaces in gaming.

As described by Heather, Laura, Rebecca & Verta, the founders of the*gameHERs, they are “four incredibly passionate, nerdy women dedicated to building authentically inclusive communities for women gamers by centering all of us. Our colorful background brings together various life experiences and skills, from toy inventing, e-sports, race relations, and social justice. Our passion for facilitating a space that all women can enjoy is matched by our dedication to bringing you the best that all gamerHERs have to offer.”
