GeoComply supports STEM education and employment through AISES link

GeoComply has linked with the American Indian Science and Engineering Society to support indigenous people throughout North America and the Pacific Islands. 

Through the partnership, which supports science, technology, engineering, mathematics education and employment, GeoComply, with a focus on the gaming sector, aims to advance diversity, inclusion and equity in STEM.

Lindsay Slader, GeoComply Managing Director of Gaming, explained: “We’re looking forward to creating education and career opportunities for indigenous communities in North America at GeoComply. 

“These communities make up nearly half of gaming operations in the US and can play a significant role in advancing STEM in those industries.”

Echoing the thoughts of Slader, Dr. Johnny Poolaw, the AISES Director of Student Success, stated: “As our world becomes more advanced with technology and science, and our Tribal Nations continue to grow and flourish, our Indigenous students must understand how and why a STEM career can not only provide an amazing career, but can also provide opportunities to give back to our communities and our world.”

The link up with AISES comes off the back of GeoComply’s reflection on New York’s sports wagering debut in January, which was lauded as “remarkable” with a total of 1.2 million accounts reportedly created.

The region’s Gaming Commission had originally cleared Caesars, DraftKings, FanDuel, and Rush Street Interactive, for launch on January 8, with BetMGM subsequently joining the fray this week.
