Leading European regulator declares support for the All-In Diversity Project Malta Gaming Authority becomes second international regulator to join the push for diversity and inclusion in the gaming industry
LONDON – February 6, 2019 – The All-in Diversity Project, an industry-driven initiative that aims to benchmark diversity, equality and inclusion in the global gaming sector, is proud to welcome one of the world’s leading gaming regulators as a Strategic Partner.
The MGA, one of the first jurisdictions to embrace online gaming and continue to keep pace with new technology and trends in the industry, is now turning its attention to the challenges of a changing workforce, through its new partnership with the All-In Diversity Project.
Malta is one of the world’s biggest gambling hubs, boasting one of the most diverse workforces in the industry. So far this has been more by accident than design. Joining forces with the All-In Diversity Project allows for a more scientific approach. The alliance means greater exposure for the issues surrounding diversity in the betting and gambling sector in Malta and will help address issues like the skills gap, recruitment and retention of talent from the local talent pools and globally.
‘’The Malta Gaming Authority is delighted to be supporting this project, as diversity, equality and inclusion are all on top of the MGA’s agenda”. says Heathcliff Farrugia, the Chief Executive Officer of the Malta Gaming Authority.
“Having the MGA support the All-in Diversity Project is another leap forward for our industry. Working in collaboration with leading regulatory organisations such as the Malta Gaming Authority means we can accelerate progress, share more information and offer better tools to the businesses located there. We are thrilled to have them as a partner,” says Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder of the All-In Diversity Project.
