FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The All-In Diversity Project is proud to announce its latest Strategic Partnership with The Responsible Gambling Council of Canada, one of the world’s leading authorities on the prevention of problem gambling and the first Canadian partner for All-In.
The topic of Diversity & Inclusion is a regular part of everyday life including part of business strategy. Several studies continue to show that a diverse workforce can be a key factor in improving a business's bottom line and overall product delivery. The next step for businesses in our industry will be to collaborate, share best practices and work on progressing together towards a more inclusive industry. The partnership between AIDP and RGC is a step forward in the right direction using data, research and responsibility to ensure we create a more diverse and inclusive industry for the future.
“Whilst the industry has done some great work in the area of responsible gaming and harm minimisation, most has been based upon the behaviours of specific social and cultural groupings. Our partnership with the RGC allows us to start to explore how diversity and inclusion and a lack of social, economic, cultural or religious awareness and unconscious bias can lead to ‘blind spots’ in our approaches to social responsibility and harm minimisation including the use of data science, machine learning and A.I. Until then we can never truly protect all of our customers, only some.” said Christina Thakor-Rankin, Co-Founder of All-In Diversity Project.
“RGC is pleased to become a partner in the All-in-Diversity Project. We believe it is vital to attract Board members and staff that reflect the communities we serve. Understanding the needs and interests of people from different backgrounds enables RGC to offer regulators, operators and players, across the globe, relevant and meaningful responsible gambling strategies and programs. We look forward to learning from and sharing with the All-in-Diversity Project partners and to continue to build an industry which treats all employees and players with respect and dignity” said Shelley White, CEO, Responsible Gambling Council.
As part of the Strategic Partnership, All-in Diversity Project and RGC will be working closely together to set the standard for how businesses can make Diversity & Inclusion and Responsible Gambling an integrated effort to improve how we as an industry progress in the future.
The All-in Diversity Project is the industry’s global resource for data pertaining to diversity and inclusion. We collect data through employee surveys and the All-Index — a standard index which is set to be the definitive benchmarking tool for the gambling industry to measure progress towards inclusion in the workplace. Our vision is to shift the paradigm for inclusion through transparency, measurability and actionable tactics.
