In order to attract the increasingly diverse consumer population to the game, we are committed to furthering inclusion in our industry. We are working to ensure that diverse groups are well-represented among our membership, staff and suppliers. To achieve this, we take a four-pronged approach to integrating diversity considerations throughout our Association: education and training, workforce diversification, supplier inclusion and community engagement.
