- Be inclusive and welcoming to all gamers
- Promote a safe environment on Xbox that everyone
- Celebrate the uniqueness of everyone in the
- Advocate for responsible and accessible gaming
- Positively represent the Xbox Ambassadors
- And, above all else: Make gaming fun for
These six principles are nothing new for Xbox Ambassadors. This
positive community has always committed to these values–now it’s just more
official. For example, MissDeusGeek,
an Xbox Ambassador, represents these principles through her support for
diversity and inclusivity in the gaming community.
As an educator for TenForward, an after-school technology
lounge for children, she helps to dispel the notion that gaming is only for
boys. Seeing groups like Women in
Gaming and Microsoft’s philosophy of Gaming for Everyone, she
wanted to connect with more women and girls who play games. Feeling void of a
strong community that involved women and girls who were passionate about Xbox,
she launched Women of Xbox which
focuses solely on female and non-binary Xbox gamers.
MissDeusGeek’s vision for the Women of Xbox group is to
strengthen community ties, share the love of Xbox gaming and empower female
gamers. Beyond this vision she aims to grow this community worldwide to bring
more female Xbox gamers together and support one another.
Similar to MissDeusGeek, Xbox Ambassador, PalmettoBling, supports
the Xbox Ambassadors pledge by promoting online safety.
With two kids beginning to play games online, he was
inspired to share his knowledge and expertise in gaming, online safety, and
privacy to other parents at his local PTA.
By using his own knowledge and experience, PalmettoBling
wanted to be a resource available to his community and local school. During his
presentation he shared security controls to parents and informed them these
controls help protect and guide children as they play in the gaming space.
PalmettoBling also emphasized that parents should encourage their kids to make
the gaming space a friendly and welcoming place for everyone to play in.
MissDeusGeek and PalmettoBling are two Xbox Ambassadors who have
been, and will continue to be inclusive and welcoming to all gamers, advocate
for responsible and accessible gaming, promote a safe environment on Xbox,
celebrate the uniqueness of everyone, and above all else: make gaming fun for
