Specialist recruitment agency WMRecruit has thrown its support behind the All-in Diversity Project after agreeing to become a strategic partner of the initiative.
WMRecruit, the first independent recruitment agency to commit to the not-for-profit initiative, will work with the All-in Diversity Project to promote diversity in the gambling sector.
The two parties will focus on ensuring that a diverse range of individuals are present in the industry’s talent pool, as well as tackling diversity, equality and inclusion challenges in the workplace.
‘All-In are true diversity and inclusion champions within an industry that is notoriously male dominated, until very recently,” WM Recruit recruitment manager Jo Galt said. “Together, we can open up more opportunities to provide fresh and diverse talent into the gaming industry.”
Kelly Kehn, co-founder of the All-in Diversity Project, added: “We are so pleased to be partnering with a specialist who is looking to shake up the traditional approach to recruitment.
“We strongly believe that parenthood should be considered a boon – not a barrier to career development and progression. Employers need to recognise that being a parent is no longer defined by gender and failing to adopt parent-friendly working practices will only serve to drive talent away.”
WMRecruit joins the likes of Paddy Power Betfair, Caesars Entertainment and IGT in supporting the initiative.
The All-in Diversity Project also confirmed this week that Shelley White, chief executive of the Responsible Gambling Council, is to join to its advisory board.
