Mr. Daniel Japiassu reports

YDX INNOVATION, AMUKA ESPORTS, AND WISDOM MEDIA LAUNCHES ESPORTS TOURNAMENT SERIES WITH WOMEN WIN

YDX Innovation Corp. has joined forces with Amuka Esports and Wisdom Gaming to create the e-sports series "Women in Leadership" (WIL). The companies have partnered with Women Win, an international organization that started in 2006 as a global women's fund dedicated to advancing girls' and womens' rights through sports.

The first two invitational tournaments will take place within the next 30 days, both featuring games by RIOT Games, one of the main game publishers in the world.

On March 27, the Teamfight Tactics (TFT) tournament will bring eight upcoming female gamers, and on April 2 and April 3, an invitational Valorant tournament will bring eight teams, all led by female team captains but with mixed-gender rosters. The team behind the scenes is also led by an experienced team of talented women.

The series will include discussion panels with high-profile women part of the e-sports and gaming industry and content creation about gender equality and how to ensure the e-sports industry develops as a safer, more inclusive and diverse environment.

Yesterday, during International Women's Day, a fundraising campaign on Tiltify was launched on social media from all the companies involved, to know more and participate.

"We are honoured to be part of such an important initiative. Women Win is an incredible organization, and we are thrilled to be working with Amuka Esports and Wisdom on this series. Events like this are crucial to help us build a brand that stands for positive change in the industries that we are part of. Women play more games than men worldwide, and yet the e-sports industry is still dominated by male pro players, mostly because of prejudice and toxic behaviour, creating a barrier against female players and diversity in general. We want to show that it's fundamental for the industry to open more doors and bring gender balance to e-sports. A special shout out to the incredible team of women leading this amazing project; this will be a tremendous success because of all of you," stated Daniel Japiassu, chief executive officer of YDX Innovation.

The companies have secured funds for the execution of the event but are looking for more sponsors and brands interested in supporting the fundraising campaign.
