“Going to DONNA DAY has been one of my favorite experiences so far during my game dev education. It was cool to meet all the professional devs, but also people like me who want to work with games in the future.”

Participant at DONNA DAY


DONNA was founded at the University of Skövde in 2011 with the intent of making it easier for women to take a place in the gaming 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.
