International Game Technology (IGT) was ‘honoured’ to be recognised for its commitment to workplace diversity and inclusivity at the inaugural Pride of Gaming Awards.
The award ceremony was created by CasinoBeats and aims to recognise both gaming industry professionals and groups whose work benefits society and improves the wider communities.
“IGT recognizes that it is necessary to have a multicultural workforce to operate effectively in the global marketplace,” said Kim Barker Lee, IGT Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion (D&I).
“We’re honored to be recognized for our work building a connected community of employees who are empowered to contribute their diverse talents in ways that deliver the optimal player experience for our customers though all our products and solutions.”
The awards took place alongside SBC’s Hall of Fame awards ceremony at London’s Natural History Museum, which sought to recognise those which have played an integral role in the development of the sports betting industry.
“When one of the world’s largest gaming companies makes a commitment to improving diversity and inclusivity in the workplace, it sends a strong message to the industry and the wider marketplace about the central importance of this objective,” said Stewart Darkin, Managing Director of CasinoBeats.
“We congratulate IGT on its leadership in developing a welcoming environment where all employees are valued, and where the workforce more closely resembles all the people and communities it serves around the world.”
