US gaming technology firm Scientific Games has unveiled its latest partnership, after aligning with the All-in Diversity Project as a founding member.
As a founding member of the non-profit organisation, that strives to create tools to advance the industry’s diversity, inclusion and workplace equality, Scientific Games is to work collaboratively with additional partners to determine diversity, equity and inclusion expectations and standards for the gaming industry, while driving a conversation to establish global standards.
Katharine Anderson, Scientific Games’ director of diversity and inclusion, said of the development: “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.
“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.”
Under the terms of the agreement, the Las Vegas headquartered organisation is to participate in dialogue with other members of the All-In Diversity Project.
The aim of such conversation is to reference the benchmarks created to track the industry’s progress, and reflect on its own current state in order to enhance areas of diversity and inclusion.
Furthermore, through a variety of events, programs, and surveys conducted in partnership with gaming industry operators and suppliers, the All-In Diversity Project will act as a central data resource, and offer impactful tools that create inclusive products, policies and teams.
Kelly Kehn, co-founder of the All-in Diversity Project, added: “It’s fantastic to have Scientific Games become a founding member of the All-In Diversity Project. We are so proud to add an organisation 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.”
