The American Gaming Association announced today that Global Gaming Women (GGW) is launching a groundbreaking new project.
GGW is behind what’s called the “Global Gaming Network.”
Billed as a first-of-its-kind online mentoring network, the program is designed to connect women professionals in the commercial casino industry.
Those behind the endeavor say that the Global Gaming Network is an innovative resource that will “allow women from all levels of the gaming entertainment industry to identify and connect with potential mentors to share their advice, experience and best practices.”
With an anticipated launch set for the first quarter of this year, the Network is currently being developed with help from SHFL Entertainment, a top manufacturer in the gaming industry.
The first sneak peek of the website took place today at a GGW networking event at ICE Totally Gaming in London. And the response, we’re told, was very positive.
“Building strong mentoring relationships is a major key to success in any industry, especially ours,” says Patti Hart, GGW co-chair and CEO of International Game Technology. “With Global Gaming Network, we are forging new paths in what it means to serve the advancement of women in business.”
