One of the many fantastic things about the gaming & hospitality industry, is the people we work with. The industry is filled with people who enjoy creating memorable experiences and do what they can to make a difference. In 2019, let’s put our efforts into making a difference to the people we work with, in particular our female colleagues, and we can start with an important opportunity coming up on the International Days of Significance Calendar.

International Women’s Day (IWD) is held annually on 8th March and is a global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The IWD 2019 campaign theme #BalanceForBetter is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world.

IWD is also a day to identify actions that every person can take to help drive better outcomes for women. WGA have put together an IWD Action Kit with 10 simple ideas on how you can celebrate IWD, and how as an industry we can unite to create change.

With such an important day of celebration coming up, we need to unite, show our support and celebrate the achievements of women in our industry.

As a sign of industry unity, we have created a WGA Lapel Pin. The lapel pin is a symbol of awareness and support for women working in gaming and hospitality. Wearing the lapel is a great way to raise awareness on and during the lead up to IWD. It can also be worn year round as a sign up support.

Collectively, we can make a difference. Balance drives a better working world. Let’s all help create a #BalanceforBetter.
