The All-In Diversity Project, an industry-led not-for-profit initiative, has recently published its fourth report on the workforce of the global betting and gaming industry. This annual survey covers the industry trends for the year 2022/23.
The latest report from the All-In Diversity Project highlights several key trends in the betting and gaming industry:
Shift in Sector Dominance: The report predicts a shift in sector dominance from Europe to North America.
Rise in Sports Betting: Sports betting has emerged as the dominant product across all participating companies, surpassing slots for the first time.
Increase in Female Leadership: The report shows a rise in female leadership across businesses in the industry.
The report reveals a widening gender gap in the industry, with 65% of employees being male and 35% being female. This gap is attributed to the rise of sports betting products in newly-regulated countries such as the United States, Canada, and Brazil. Additionally, the report identifies a growing number of employees who identify as non-confirmative gender or non-binary.
Females make up 29% of executive roles and 37% of non-executive roles in the industry. The increase in female non-executive directors is predicted to reach 40% by 2026, aligning with imminent regulations on board gender representation in Europe.
The report highlights the importance and impact of diversity, equality, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives in the industry. It notes that the top ten scoring companies in the report are publicly-listed corporations, indicating that DEI is a priority for policymakers, investors, and shareholders. The report emphasizes the commercial benefits of robust DEI practices.
The report also showcases practical initiatives and programs implemented by leading organizations in the industry. These initiatives serve as inspiration for those seeking to support their DEI goals.
