iGaming Idol nominations celebrate gender diversity in the industry
It is the night when the stars come out to play, the night where individual excellence is recognised and celebrated, top notch entertainment is par for the course and charity is at the top of the agenda. This year’s much-anticipated edition of iGaming Idol, to be held on the 11th September at the InterContinental Arena Conference Centre in St Julian’s promises once again to exceed all expectations and more…
iGaming Idol’s landmark moment
This year marks another milestone in our history; an incredible 2000+ unique nominations from the industry, are not only a clear indication of the continued strength and support iGaming Idol receives both locally and internationally, but also an encouraging sign that the event has become an effective benchmark for the industry.
Ivan Filletti, HOO & Business Development, Gaming Malta commented, “We are now reaching the final stages. Finalists including Maltese talent who are pushing the loop in their areas of specialisation, and foreign talent who have chosen Malta as their theatre of dreams. Additionally, a great testament to diversity and equality in the iGaming sector.”
Female stars on the ascendant
If this year’s finalists are anything to go by, it seems that the industry, a purportedly male dominated environment, has well and truly shattered the notorious glass ceiling. With an unprecedented proportion of women making it to the finals, totalling more than 50 percent, we are more than proud that with regard to achieving gender parity, iGaming Idol remains at the forefront.
Pierre Lindh, Managing Director, Ambassadör Events commented, “With more than 2000 nominations this year, we are thrilled to see the year on year increase in the number of talented women amongst our finalists. As an industry veteran, I’m excited to see that our traditionally male dominated industry is now edging closer towards diversity, which is in everyone’s best interest. Good luck to all finalists!”
Providing the elusive, all-inclusive platform
“We at All-in Diversity Project are thrilled to see women putting themselves forward and companies supporting them through this prestigious award process. There are so many successful people in our industry and it’s very important that we see them if we are to reach gender parity. This might be the first industry awards EVER where 50% of the shortlist are female! A big thanks to iGaming Idol for providing an inclusive platform to celebrate the stars in our sector. Well done to everyone who was nominated and good luck!” Kelly Kehn, Co-Founder, All-in Diversity Project.
A celebration of female role models
Natasha Gowans, Head of Communications, GiG said, “It is incredibly inspiring to see so many female role models as finalists in this year’s iGaming Idol. While all of these men and women finalists are making their impact, it is uplifting to see increased visibility in particular of the women in the industry. Well done to all, and I look forward to celebrating your success at the event.”
Therefore, with so many milestones to celebrate, join us once again for a star-studded awards’ night that promises to be even more spectacular, glittering and entertaining; a night where our vibrant industry celebrates excellence, passion and the unique talent emanating from within its formidable ranks.
