Kindred Group Press Release
Malta, 28 March 2018
Kindred Group joins forces with the All-in Diversity Project as part of the company’s sustainability work and ambition to transform gambling. The project is an industry driven initiative to benchmark diversity, equality and inclusion for the betting and gaming sector.
Kindred Group (previously Unibet Group) has signed up as a Founding Member with the All-in Diversity Project as part of Kindred’s commitment to help drive the diversity and equality agenda within the gambling industry. The All-in Diversity project will help facilitate the conversation on diversity and equality in the betting and gaming sector, thereby making this exciting and growing entertainment industry more inclusive and attractive for all people of our society.
For Kindred, who operates a business with employees representing more than 50 nationalities, diversity and equality remains a priority area to continue to develop the business for the future. The Group recently launched the #queenrules project on International Women’s Day to challenge unconscious gender bias through a new way of playing cards. On the same day Kindred took part at the Women in Tech conference in Stockholm to inspire young women to seek a career in tech and gambling.
“We are very excited and proud to be part of the All-in Diversity project, who’s vision and mission fully reflect our own agenda and priorities in this important area.
Diversity and gender equality have always been a natural part of Kindred’s culture and we know that it differentiates the top performers from the average ones regardless of the industry. We look forward to taking part in raising the awareness on this topic across the gambling industry and beyond”, says Henrik Tjärnström, Chief Executive Officer of Kindred Group.
