Conference to Examine Diversity in the Gambling Industry

21st February 2018

GamCare CEO, Anna Hemmings, will take part in a panel discussion at the upcoming Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Gambling Industry conference, organised by KnowNow events.

This conference is designed to help give gambling operators the tools needd to develop and implement a culture of diversity and inclusion.

Sarah Harrison, Chief Executive at the Gambling Commission, recently spoke at the Global Gaming Women event, part of the ICE Totally Gaming Conference 2018. Sarah says: "A push for a more diverse industry – not just on the basis of gender – is not about a desire for political correctness. An industry that has diversity in all respects and at all levels, will better understand its consumers and the wider public and will be more inclusive and open to different and new ideas. Armed with this, a business can better meet the needs of their customers, respond to the worries of society and be innovative in the way it meets challenges and seizes its opportunities.”

Anna Hemmings will join a panel on driving cultural change from the top, and the benefits when this filters throughout the whole organisation. Anna will also reflect on how organisational culture and diversity are linked to good customer care, helping businesses look after their customers and ensure they are safeguarded.
