1,000 Dreams Fund’s BroadcastHER Initiative

1,000 Dreams Fund supports talented women following their dreams across a variety of industries. Our BroadcastHER Initiative and grant programs are designed to support women & femmes who are pursuing their dreams in content creation and gaming, while raising awareness for the continued gender gap in financial funding in the ever-expanding gaming and broadcasting space. This includes supporting cis women, trans women, trans feminine, and those who face disparities and discrimination in correlation to misogyny and identity.

“To identify and elevate high-potential women & femmes in gaming, esports, and content creation, providing the industry with a diverse pipeline of talent to create equitable opportunity.”
