We are so excited to announce our 1DF – Twitch BroadcastHER Grant Fall 2019 winners. This group of inspiring females are broadcasting their dreams and gaming their way to the top — and we couldn’t be more proud to honor them.
Over the course of five fundraisers, we have raised nearly $100,000 from more than 2,607 donors! We could not have done it without our amazing fundraising broadcasters, whose efforts helped us fund more than 100 dreams since the launch of the 1DF – Twitch BroadcastHER Grant Program in 2018.
We started the BroadcastHER Initiative specifically to support female content creators. That’s because, while women represent nearly 50% of gamers and are rising in influence in the e-sports industry, they still face hurdles including gender gaps in salaries and prize earnings and a lack of financial support to fund their creative projects.
It is our hope that this grant will help all promising talent work towards their individual gaming and streaming goals in even bigger ways, whether that’s traveling to gaming conventions like TwitchCon, getting hardware and equipment upgrades, or participating in educational conferences or instructional programs.
This fall, we are so thrilled to have such a fascinating and wide variety of female broadcasters who represent so many different genres and backgrounds.
You can meet all of them right here!
Congratulations again to all of our winners!
