Industry workplace diversity, inclusion and equality program ‘The All-in Diversity Project’ (AIDP) has announced a major coup as Nasdaq gambling technology group Scientific Games Corporation (SGC) commits to its workplace standards, projects and practices.
Updating the market, SGC details that it will collaborate with existing AIDP partners to ‘determine diversity, equity and inclusion expectations and standards for the gaming industry’.
“Gaming is evolving and growing more than ever, and it’s crucial that the industry embraces the diverse and unique people who contribute to the gaming world,” said Katharine Anderson, Scientific Games Director of Diversity and Inclusion.
“Scientific Games is proud to be a founding partner of this trailblazing project and celebrates the efforts being made to create an inclusive environment with opportunities for all.”
In its update, SGC informs that it will further participate in better dialogue with industry stakeholders, seeking to develop a transparent and effective agenda on industry workplace diversify and inclusion practices.
Kelly Kehn, the co-founder of the All-In Diversity Project, said, “It’s fantastic to have Scientific Games become a founding member of the All-In Diversity Project. We are so proud to add an organization who doesn’t just ‘talk the talk’ but is proactively open to collaboration and discussion around developing best practices which help to address key challenges that we face not only in the gaming industry, but across all industries.”
In further developments, this May AIDP announced the launch of its new corporate identity, with the industry social program ‘withdrawing its gender references’ from its logo.
“We wanted to develop the logo so that it is more versatile and adaptable in order to work in different contexts and still be recognisable, so we also developed an AIDP icon that can be used for future campaigns and to show our support to movements or events such as Gay pride.” details AIDP in its update.
