This is EXACTLY our kind of thing!

Thank you to everyone who voted for us and who believes in the work we do. 

Our BroadcastHER Initiative and grant programs are designed to support women and femmes who are pursuing their dreams in content creation and gaming. Since its launch in 2018, we’ve gone on to provide nearly a half-million dollars in funding, mentorship and job opportunities for women in gaming and esports!

This work matters because only 22% of women represent leading roles in esports — and even fewer in esports broadcasting — even though women represent nearly half of gamers around the world, In fact, there is only ONE woman in the top 500 earners in esports. And, out of the top 100 streamers on Twitch, only ONE was a woman in 2022! 

We’re working to change these stats for the better — but we couldn’t do it without our dreamers, supporters, and community like you who support our work.

Here’s to another half-million dollars and counting!
