She Jams 2024

After an amazing first edition in 2023, She Jams is back as a 10-day global game jam exclusively for women in games.
 

Whilst maintaining the flexibility to participate remotely, we’re also introducing 10 on-site locations around the world where participants can jam in person! 
 

The locations will provide a safe and, fun space to meet and collaborate in person!
 

Our team of mentors will be available to support participants through workshops and support sessions, ensuring a rich and empowering experience throughout the game jam.
 

To ensure a fair competition, a fun theme will be revealed at the start of the game jam, which all games need to be designed around.
 

A Word From Our Official Partner

We are proud to continue our partnership with She Jams.
At NEOM, we are dedicated to building a vibrant hub for the rapidly expanding games industry in the MENA region.

We supported She Jams to empower women in gaming by providing them with the resources, networking opportunities, and mentorship needed to thrive in the industry. We believe She Jams fosters a supportive community where women can collaborate, innovate, and advance their careers in gaming.

Last year, we launched Level Up, our video games accelerator program, and we were thrilled to see a start-up formed by women who met at She Jams 2023 join this year’s program.

This demonstrates not only our extensive reach but also the exceptional quality of women entering the program.

In addition to She Jams and the Level Up Gaming Accelerator, we have also introduced the NEOM Game Dev Challenge in KSA to inspire high school students to pursue careers in gaming. The program saw 50% female participation, and an all female team win!

Through our initiatives, women consistently showcase remarkable drive, talent, and potential within the Saudi gaming landscape. By supporting She Jams, we aim to inspire more women to embark on gaming careers and cultivate a culture of creativity, collaboration, and innovation within NEOM and globally.

We eagerly anticipate the exceptional games that will emerge from this year’s She Jams and extend our best wishes to all participants!
