Welcome to DONNA Work Fair, a new opportunity for members and partners of the DONNA network only. This is where we present upcoming events and our partners current job openings and internships.
DONNA was founded at the University of Skövde in 2011 with the intent of making it easier for game students and game developers who identify as female or non-binary to take place in the games industry. By working with the industry, we work for equality and to remove any obstacles that students experience when going out into the job market. DONNA Day facilitates that transition.
The idea for DONNA DAY was born out of a discussion with industry representatives after a talk about DONNA during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. The main purpose was to create an event to inspire and recruit more women to the game industry. Read more about DONNA DAY.
“Amazing opportunity to network with other women in the game industry and learn more about working at a studio and the experience as a woman in a male dominated industry.”

"The games industry has been male-dominated for a long time, we want to help promote a more equal and diverse workplace. There is still a lot to do, but Donna Network is an important step for us when it comes to the development of workplaces everywhere in Sweden and the world to move forward with gender equality."
Henrik Nel, CEO of MindArk
"The number of female workers in the gaming industry is still low; roughly 30% globally. Women are less represented in games and in gaming companies. This could mean we are less likely to go for a degree or career because we don’t feel like we belong. At Hiber, we want to change that and this is why we want to be a partner, ally, and future employer for female workers."
Jane Billet, Director of Marketing at Hiber
"Having diverse development teams helps improve the experiences in our games by providing different perspectives and mindsets on all aspects of production. We believe that diverse studios make better games, and a better work place!"
Pierre Dahlgren, Recruiter at Thunderful
