IGT has been recognized for diversity, equity and inclusion excellence in the latest All-In Diversity Project All-Index report for 2023. 

The global gaming technology firm was listed as a high-ranking supplier and described as a “driving factor” in improving DEI across the gaming industry throughout the last four years since the report was first released. 

The firm finished third out of 29 companies who participated in the report, citing its Sustainable Play initiatives that aim to create a more diverse and inclusive environment. 

IGT created its Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in 2018 and has implemented several new policies to ensure a more inclusive hiring process, as well as promoting employee-led groups and training staff members on DEI best practices.

“The 2023 All-Index results demonstrate IGT’s leadership and progress in fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace,” said Brian Blake, IGT Vice President, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. 

“Our high-ranking score reflects our dedication to company-wide initiatives such as internal inclusion learning, employee-led Diversity and Inclusion Groups (DIGs), and regional councils to help ensure that our employees can thrive in a more successful organization.”

The All-In Diversity Project has been publishing its All-Index survey since 2019 in collaboration with the Centre for Diversity Policy Research and Practice at Oxford Brookes University in the UK.

The report aims to track annual progress with regards to diversity and inclusion in the gaming industry by analyzing practices across corporate governance, internal policies, recruitment practices, equal pay, employment legislation, company benefits, and advocacy.

“In our fourth year of running the All-Index report, IGT has again proven the power of measuring DEI efforts,” said Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder of the All-In Diversity Project. 

“We thank them for their continued support and transparency in sharing their data, practices, and policies so that everyone in gaming and betting sectors may benefit. IGT’s leadership is definitely a driving factor in creating a more diverse and inclusive industry.”
