Here’s the agenda for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Gambling Industry
Join us in London on May 22nd for the latest gambling industry conference from KnowNow Limited; Equality, Diversity and Inclusion in the Gambling Industry.
Why should you care about diversity?
In her speech at ICE, Sarah Harrision, then CEO at the Gambling Commission called for a more diverse gambling industry.
“A push for a more diverse industry – not just on the basis of gender – is not about a desire for political correctness. An industry that has diversity in all respects and at all levels, will better understand its consumers and the wider public, and will be more inclusive and open to different and new ideas.”
Clear your diary for 22nd May and join the KnowNow team in London for a great day of networking and sharing knowledge and experiences.
