There’s nothing more powerful than a group of people coming together under one uniting cause and for us, that’s International Women’s Day.
The Gaming & Hospitality Industry has a responsibility to increase women’s participation in the workforce. To balance the game, we need to unite as an industry, show our support and celebrate the achievements of women in gaming and hospitality.
To help you plan your International Women’s Day activities, we’ve put together a resource full of ideas on how your organisation can celebrate, content to fill your newsletters and EDMs with, and case studies from organisations that are moving the needle for women in their workplace.
The theme for 2021 is #ChoosetoChallenge, recognising that a challenged world is an alert world. Individually we are all responsible for our own thoughts and actions. We can choose to challenge and call out gender stereotypes and bias. Collectively, we can create an inclusive world.
Over time, International Women’s Day has become a day to reflect on progress, to call for change and to celebrate the courage and determination of the women who changed history. It is also an opportunity to unite, network and mobilise for meaningful change.
In an industry which is, and is seen as largely dominated by men, it is critical that we collectively harness our power to create change to ensure we are recognising, appreciating and utilising the unique insights that come from diversity of experiences, skills, background and thought.
