Anat ShperlingCo-founder & CEOToya

Anat Shperling is co-founder and CEO of Toya, a female-led studio developing digital games and media to empower the 1.3+ billion female gamers around the world who have traditionally been overlooked by the gaming industry. Toya’s vision is to transform the realm of online gaming into a place where anyone can be who they wish to be, regardless of their gender, the color of their skin, or their physical address. Where girls and boys are not bound by the constraints of our imperfect world and can experience their own freedom, agency and potential. Prior to Toya, Anat founded the Women in the Picture Association in Israel, leading a change in the status and representation of women filmmakers in the industry. The association’s flagship project was the International Women’s Film Festival. Anat also served as the chairperson of the film repertoire committee at the Israeli Ministry of Education. Anat has a BFA in Film and Television from Tel Aviv University and MA in Gender Studies from Bar Ilan University.
