Women-led gaming lifestyle company Queens Gaming Collective has announced that 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup winner Allie Long has joined its advisory board as a strategic advisor.
As part of her role, Long will collaborate with Queens Gaming Collective’s roster of creators, streamers, and competitors to help develop their gaming brands and businesses.
The OL Reign player will also assist in the company’s goal of becoming an ‘industry-defining women-led gaming and esports lifestyle brand’, according to the release.
Long commented on her new role in a release: “We are at a pivotal moment right now for women, and Queens Gaming Collective has arrived at the perfect time. I want females to feel empowered to do whatever they want to do, especially in a male-dominated space like gaming.
“By being a member of the Queens Gaming collective I can give confidence and model inclusiveness so other female gamers get online and never feel inferior in any competition.”
The recruitment comes after the brand unveiled Christie St. Martin as its Chief Content Officer in February.
Alisa Jacobs, CEO of Queens Gaming Collective, also spoke on the appointment: “Allie Long perfectly aligns with our brand ethos. She is a positive role model and a strong advocate for women’s empowerment. We look forward to involving her in every aspect of building our company.
“What women face in gaming is no different to what women face in sports, and Allie’s continuous fight for equality is so important as we create a major culture shift in this industry. We can’t wait for her to share Queens Gaming Collective with all the young girls who look up to her in admiration.”
