At Rix.GG, Sølvmose will be responsible for developing a competitive scene, tournaments, and creating inclusive policies and programmes for the organisation. Sølvmose is a former professional League of Legends player who made the switch to team manager while working for Galaxy Racer.
Rix.GG founder and CEO Jamie Lewis said: “Nicole brings an incredible background within esports and top tier performance. I can’t wait to see what she brings to the table with grassroots inclusivity for all in mind. At Rix.GG we’re committed to making sure esports opportunities are available for everyone.”
Esports Inclusion head Nicole Sølvmose said: “For the last nearly 5 years I have been fighting to encourage more women and marginalized genders to enter the competitive and professional side of Esports. Every aspect of Esports is for everyone and anyone should be able to enter it, safely without being harassed. Rix.GG has given me the opportunity and the lead of developing the female and marginalized genders competitive side of Esports, while also creating safe spaces of inclusion for everyone. I am over the moon to work for Rix.GG, an organization, that wants to make a positive change within Esports. This team has their heart and visions in the right place! Together we will bring down barriers.”
