Alongside the launch of the platform, Radiant has also unveiled its Galaxy Partners Program, enabling it to collaborate with organisations and brands working to increase the presence of women in gaming and esports.
As of this writing, the programme’s partners include NYX Professional Makeup, esports infrastructure company Nerd Street Gamers, social media platform Twitter, and performance wear company VIRUS International.
Heather ‘sapphiRe’ Garrozo, Vice President of Community and Events at New Meta Entertainment, spoke on the launch: “Raidiant comes from the combination of ‘radiant’ and ‘raid. Radiants bring light, which is what the site is doing for women gamers who are not regularly covered by the media.
“We were also inspired by live stream raids where raids are meant to champion others by raising their profiles and expanding reach. Our goal is that Raidiant melds these meanings together and ultimately, we build a stronger community, together.”

Raidiant is the next stage of Dignitas’ women’s initiative that first launched in August 2020 through its ‘_FE’ platform. The platform was created to provide more opportunities for amateur and professional players along with content creators.
Esports Insider says: The esports industry is slowly becoming more inclusive thanks to initiatives such as Raidiant, a platform that looks set to become a hive of activity in the coming months. It’ll be interesting to see if more esports entities adopt a similar programme in the coming months.
