Alice Rendell, Catherine Woolley and Charlotte Woolley were included in the list which recognises leading women within the video games industry. Alice and Catherine studied BA Computer Games Design at the University, whilst Charlotte, Catherine’s twin sister, studied BA Film, and followed her sister into the industry after graduation.
Alice comments: “It is amazing to be included in a list such as this with so many other women that I know and respect, some of which I have looked up to for many years as role models. It is an absolute honour to be on a list with these people.”
Catherine adds: Both me and my sister have always had a love of video games ever since we were little. After graduating it wasn’t long before I was in a design role in games and Charlotte then also decided she’d like to be involved in the games industry too.”
