we're energized by the opportunity to change the way people think about gaming
Since its foundation in 2015, Black Girl Gamers (BGG) has grown from a small Facebook group into a thriving collective of 8,000+ black women around the globe. All with a shared passion for gaming and a shared ambition to make impact on it.
Evolving from a like-minded group of friends to a community-powered business, BGG has become an influential agent of change throughout the gaming industry. Partnering with brands to change gaming from the inside out.
Across content, events, education, consulting, and talent, BGG partners with endemic and non-endemic brands throughout the gaming space (Google, Facebook, Netflix, etc.) and gaming communities to grow the influence, representation, equity and experience of black women in gaming.
