All-in Diversity expands its Canadian presence with Shelley White appointment

The All-in Diversity Project has strengthened its advisory board with the appointment of Responsible Gambling Council CEO Shelley White.

White is hoped to bring with her ““a wealth of experience and industry knowledge” as she joins  fellow board members Susan Hensel, Jan Jones Blackhurst, Richard Schuetz, Sue Schneider and Holly Cook Macarro.

All-in Diversity co-founder, Christina Thakor-Rankin, celebrated the new addition to the team. She commented: “Social responsibility is a key to the long-term sustainability and reputation of our industry.

“To have an individual who understands this in every which way imaginable is more than we would dare to have hoped for, and consider ourselves very fortunate indeed, and very keen to capitalise on the insight and expertise Shelley brings.”

The organisation was created to act as a benchmark for diversity, inclusion and equality, and via the new recruit, hopes to expand its voice into Canada.

“We are so delighted to have Shelley join us, her deep knowledge of the industry as well as a passion to see it improve and thrive is invaluable to the project, stated Kelly Kehn, All-in Diversity co-founder.  

Lauded a “centre of excellence in responsible gambling,” Shelley leads the mission of promoting such issues and spearheading its reduction.

She concluded: “I am very pleased to join the All-In Diversity Project Advisory Board. I look forward to working with this dynamic group of leaders on this vital industry initiative.   

“Creating diverse, equitable and inclusive organisations and communities where individuals feel valued, included and can thrive is extremely important to me.

“I have been involved in this work for 20 years. I have seen first-hand the extraordinary difference it makes in people’s careers and lives.”
