IGT has been recognised as one of the top-ranking suppliers in the 2021 All-In Diversity Project’s report into diversity and inclusion in the industry.
All-Index, the report that serves as a benchmarking tool for diversity, equality and inclusion in the betting and gaming sectors, placed IGT in the top three ranked firms, owing to its ‘leadership in sustainability and discipline in implementing policies that promote a diverse and inclusive culture.
“As a leader in sustainability, IGT prioritizes fostering a culture of continuous improvement and cultivating an inclusive and welcoming work environment, as reflected in this year’s All-Index survey results,” said Dorothy Costa, IGT Senior Vice President of People and Transformation.
“We continue to make significant progress in our diversity and inclusion initiatives through employee feedback, surveys, and industry benchmarks that are critical to measuring our success.
“IGT remains dedicated to driving change by adopting emerging trends and taking actions that help ensure all employees are empowered to thrive and bring their full and authentic selves to work.”
The All-Index survey welcomed participation from over 40 companies in the industry covering 2020-2021.
Analysing industry-wide trends with regard to equality and diversity, the report uncovered that the employment split between men and women has shifted from 50-50 to 56% male, 43% female. For the first time, there was also a measurable number of participants who identified as non-binary.
Ranking the participants, Sky Sports and Betting took the top spot, scoring 85 out of 100 points. Second place went to Kindred with 79 points, and IGT rounded out the top three with 78 points. Only 12 of the 40 companies surveyed scored above 50.
IGT has consistently ranked highly since the index began in 2018. With this year’s report covering the pandemic, the global lottery and gaming firm was lauded for supporting people during that time.
“In this, the third year of the All-Index, we would like to congratulate IGT for once again proving that measurement matters,” added Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder of the All-In Diversity Project.
“As one of our partners from the beginning, IGT continues to show up and lead the industry by sharing their data, internal practices and policies, and advocating for the better. We are grateful for the data and support they provide and their willingness to share their best practices to help improve our industry.”
