Fighting the Prejudices
According to Playtech, the company decided to join the movement in order to promote diversity and inclusion in the gaming industry.
The managing director of Girls in Tech Gibraltar branch, Cristian Turbatu said the organization would deliver a successful and motivational platform to encourage women not only to enter but above all to succeed in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The organization will continue to do what it does best – to provide project aimed at raising awareness of the gender-related prejudice, which is still widespread in the society and to provide means of eliminating it.
Playtech employs over 5,000 people in 17 locations worldwide, and as such is a huge promoter of diversity and inclusion. According to Shimon Akad, Playtech’s Chief Operating Officer, diversity is what makes the company strong and contributes to its global position in the industry.
