Women in Esports, a campaign that was launched by the British Esports Association, recently announced it had partnered with Dota Valkyries, which is an organization that supports women in the Dota 2 pro scene. As a result, both parties will work together to support women in gaming while giving more representation to marginalized groups within the global esports community.
“We’re extremely excited to have partnered with an organization that closely shares our values. From the offset, it’s been clear that we have similar goals and through collaboration, we hope to drive long-standing change within the esports industry,” said Natacha Jones, the Women in Esports Chair. “By partnering with the Valkyries we look to encourage participation of marginalized genders, celebrate existing talent, and to band together in larger conversations surrounding inclusivity and diversity within the industry.”
The first collaboration will be the Valkyrie Cup, a mix-gendered community tournament scheduled to take place on September 18th and 19th. The prize pool for the tournament is 40 Dota 2 Battle Pass Levels
