The All-In Diversity Project has detailed its latest Strategic Partnership with The National Council of Problem Gambling (NCPG) in the United States.
The topic of Diversity and inclusion is one that is front and centre today, both in this and other industries as well as garnering media attention. Several studies have shown that a diverse workforce can be a key factor in improving a businesses bottom line and overall product delivery.
Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder of All-in Diversity Project commented: “We believe that a partnership with NCPG will prove that when we can change the internal makeup of our businesses and bring new perspectives to how we do business, our customers will inherently benefit.
New talent who bring with them varying backgrounds, experience and perspectives will only positively add to how we protect our customers. This partnership personifies how businesses should be approaching social responsibility, and we are proud to have NCPG on board.”
This is re-iterated by fellow Co-Founder Christina Thakor-Rankin who emphasised: “The partnership with the National Council of Problem Gambling allows the All-in Diversity Project to not only extend the discussion around diversity, equality and inclusion to harm minimisation and the importance of the socio-economic and cultural profile of support organisations vis a viz the profile of the players they hope to help, but also reach out to the world of gaming and start to explore the issues of diversity, inclusion and risk as they relate to the next generation of players.”
Marlene Warner, President of the NCPG Board of Directors also added: “This partnership is very exciting for both organisations. Together, NCPG and the All-in Diversity Project can respond to the clarion call in the gaming industry for more diversity so that we may better serve our members, inform the industry, and work to protect problem gamblers and their families.”
Keith Whyte, Executive Director at National Council on Problem Gambling stated, “NCPG is proud to support All-in Diversity Project as we believe NGO’s have an important role to play in leading by example and by encouraging our members in the gaming industry to support diversity and inclusion. We are proud to be a part of the solution to the social problems we face today.”
As part of the Strategic Partnership, All-in Diversity Project and NCPG will be working closely together to set the standard for how businesses can make diversity, inclusion and responsible Gambling an integrated effort to improve how we as an industry progress in the future.
