Women In Games: Jenny Williams

Women In Games: Jenny Williams

Now synonymous esports in Australia, Jenny first entered the industry through Canberra’s Reload Bar in 2014. There she managed four competitive Call Of Duty, CS:GO, Rocket League and League of Legends whilst hosting local tournaments at the bar

She was later picked up by Abyss (now Bombers esports club), and would manage their OPL, Rocket League and Paladins teams.

In early 2017 Jenny began working on the online series, The Next Gamer working across social media and sponsorships. Whilst with the show she founded partnerships with  the likes of BLK and AK Racing, and worked with Logitech, Intel and Holden to ensure The Next Gamer’s success.

After the completion of Season 1 of the show, Jenny joined ESL Australia as Partnerships Coordinator. At this year’s IEM Jenny was the project manager of the ESL Women’s Open and ran a team of over 100 volunteers.

At the same time as joining ESL Australia, Jenny also began assisting the EGAA board with Operations and Events, and was instrumental in launching and executing the country’s first ever esports conference. On a personal note, I can vouch that the first ever Esports Pro Oceania Awards, which followed the conference would not have been the success it was without Jenny’s direct involvement.

This year she has also begun studying full time with Swinburne University and has been elected as President of Swinbune University’s Esports Club.
