New survey measuring the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on diversity, equality and inclusion (DEI) in the betting and gaming industry was launched by Comprehensive Diversity Project (AiDP) .
Impact on the working environment in the gambling industry
The industry's first survey available worldwide is designed to identify the impact of employers and employees who wish to anonymously share their thoughts and experiences on attitudes and attitudes towards the workplace.
Kelly Kehn, co-founder of AiDP, explained that by asking "the right questions" to both employers and employees, the organization is trying to identify both ends of the coronavirus impact on the industry and devise an appropriate strategy to deal with the negative consequences and strengthen positive supportive impact.
In addition, she noted that the survey is an important tool for the global betting and gaming industry to measure diversity including non-equality in the workplace. In addition, AiGP will use the data collected in the survey to educate and inform businesses and gaming organizations around the world about the impact on both employers and employees.
The study, conducted in collaboration with Facebook Gaming, has the ultimate goal to determine the "long-term footprint" of disease in society and the workplace, focusing on those working in the gambling sector, whose retail section was one of the most affected by temporary closures and has recently started to reboot opening a business in the UK.
Measure the DEI of the global workplace
AiGP, which was launched in 2017 to create tools for the global industry to solve diversity, inclusion and equality issues, relies on data collection, measurement and benchmarking of progress and provides the results in its annual report.
"We believe that change is best driven by industry itself, and if we can facilitate this change with solid experience, business practice and collaboration, we can grow much faster than ourselves."
AiGP also organizes initiatives such as the recently announced corporate sponsorship of a number of gaming companies including Penn National Gaming, Hero Gaming, Interactive Gaming Group, Playtech, Pronet Gaming, Insight Group, and Facebook Gaming #OpenDoors 2021.
The campaign's goal was to raise awareness of how others can influence an individual's professional development, and to help people recognize the need for additional support if they were to further their careers.
