Microgaming is the latest firm to join the initiative

The All-in Diversity project has gone from strength to strength by not only announcing Microgaming as the latest firm to get on board with the initiative, but also by receiving a nomination at this year’s Women In Gaming Diversity Awards.

This year will be the ninth edition of the Women in Gaming Diversity Awards, which will be hosted at the Savoy Hotel in London on the 11th of May. The All-in Diversity project has been nominated in the team of the year category.

Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder of the All-in Diversity Project, told TotallyGaming.com: “We have been involved with the Women in Gaming Diversity Awards for a number of years now. In fact, that's how we met.

"We started our first discussions about launching All-in Diversity Project after one of their networking events and they were the first organisation to support us and allow us to announce AIDP to the world. So, this is very important and close to our hearts. The event not only celebrates our industry's top female talent but also highlight those businesses who are already supporting women and working towards workplace equality.”

The nomination was followed by the news that Microgaming has joined the initiative as a founding member, continuing in its aims to help spearhead progress towards a more inclusive gaming sector. Microgaming joins Kindred, Paddy Power Betfair and IGT amongst others that have already got on board with the not for profit initiative

As part of the project, All-in Diversity holds ambitions to provide annual reports on progress made, as well as recommendations to improve issues such as diversity and inclusion within the industry, in areas such as corporate governance, recruitment and equal pay.

John Coleman, Microgaming CFO, commented: “Our diverse workforce helps keep us strong, dynamic and moving forward. It is important that we identify industry-specific barriers to inclusion and diversity so we can continue to work on areas where we can help diversity thrive.

“We look forward to working with All-in Diversity and being part of the driving force aimed at creating a more inclusive environment within the industry for years to come.”

Totally Gaming says: The continued momentum of the All-in Diversity is an affirmation of not only the positive work the project is doing, but also the industry’s ambition to increasing diversity in the sector. That being said, there is still work to be done and it’s important that momentum keeps moving in the right direction when it comes to increasing diversity.
