Ernest Adams joins advisory board of Women in Games International

I'm proud to announce that I have been asked to serve on the advisory board of Women in Games International, a group founded to improve conditions for women in the game industry and encourage new women to join. I have long been supportive of this aim, and was delighted to accept. Something like this was tried in the mid-90s, but didn't work out. WIGI was set up in 2005 and has already given several conferences around the USA and in the UK -- the amount of interest is enormous. I look forward to serving and lending what assistance I can to their efforts. The industry has long suffered from a dearth of female talent, and WIGI should help to remedy that.
