Tutor is equalities in gaming ambassador

An esports tutor at SGS College is thrilled to have been selected as an ambassador for the Women in Games programme.

The aim of the programme is to establish a gaming industry, culture and community free from discrimination, something which Nikki Livingstone is keen to promote.

Nikki, who is passionate about esports and currently competes for an all-female Valorant roster, joined the new SGS esports team in September and is actively encouraging girls into the industry.

Nikki Livingstone said: "I am passionate about creating a culture of equality, support and teamwork within our Esports Academy at SGS College. As an esports lecturer, I am in an excellent position to pave the way for many young women who aspire to work in esports, providing them with skills, knowledge and links to role models who demonstrate that anything is possible.

"As an ambassador for Women in Games, I am excited to be part of a growing community of people who are passionate about achieving equality of access, opportunity and treatment of women in the games and esports industries.

"I look forward to working with Women in Games to achieve their vision of a gaming industry, culture and community free from discrimination."
