From producers to fans, accountants to voice actors, #WeAre celebrates women across all roles in the industry.
The women in this gallery were photographed at video game events and asked to provide a few words to inspire others.

I love the constantly evolving landscape with new technologies and business models. The innovation and pure genius of the game developers is truly inspiring. It is an honor to take such a brilliance to market and see the joy it brings to the gaming community!
I'm not for sure if love is the most accurate word to describe what gaming is to me. It's been in my life for as long as I could remember and it's such a huge part of who I am. Sometimes it's tough being yourself or I should say dealing with life and all it throws at you. Playing as a character in a video game can sometimes help you work through those challenges and make you stronger because of it! When I'm doing something really tough I always say to myself "Be strong like Lara!" and as silly as it sounds her story and journey in Rise of the Tomb Raider really motivates me!

It's so important to be able to find mentors who can speak on your behalf and help bring you up. I know for myself, one of the key choices I made that impacted my career was allowing myself to ask questions and to find other women in the industry with similar experiences.
