GiG shows commitment to increasing diversity in the gambling industry
Gaming Innovation Group (GiG) has partnered with the All-in Diversity Project (AIDP), truly expressing its dedication to increasing diversity in the gaming industry. Furthermore, GiG’s already existing partnership with Girls in Tech prioritises the engagement, education and empowerment of girls and women who have a passion for technology.
The GiG CEO, Robin Reed, said: “GiG’s vision is to open up iGaming to make it fun and fair for all. By attracting a more diverse workforce, the gambling industry can not only improve its performance but make better decisions. Through All-In, we will become part of a bigger conversation involving more organisations to work on improving the joint diversity challenge faced by the industry.”
Kelly Kehn, Co-founder of All-in Diversity Project, commented:“GiG shares our values and is truly walking their talk”
“It’s clear that Gaming Innovation Group has always had Diversity and Inclusion at the heart of their company culture. It’s evident in everything they do. We believe that ‘diversity’ is not a one- off initiative, but rather should be embraced at all levels and as part of how we move our industry forward in terms of image, product and talent. GiG shares those values and is truly walking their talk. We are proud to have them as a Founding Member of the All-in Diversity Project.”
The GiG CMO, Tomas Bäckman, added: “Attracting strong female candidates to fill product, commercial and tech-related leadership roles is key”
“From a commercial point of view, GiG needs to speak to its female audience just as well as the male audience when thinking about the personalization of our online casino products. Attracting strong female candidates to fill product, commercial and tech-related leadership roles is key.”
GiG’s next big event will be celebrating the 5-year anniversary of GiG with an internal conference, called “GiGsters Connect”, where employees will learn more about the partnership.
GiGsters Connect will be featuring Apple Co-founder, Steve “Woz” Wozniak, to speak at the event. In addition to the 650+ GiGsters travelling from 6 locations across Europe, GiG has invited 400+ members of the Maltese Tech community to be inspired by the famous Woz.
