The Federal Group of Tasmania commits to an inclusive industry by partnering with Women in Gaming & Hospitality Australasia.

An inclusive industry will ensure improved business performance, mitigate future skill shortages and align the industry with community and customer expectations.

Women in Gaming & Hospitality Australasia (WGHA) Director, Kim Lee, “I am thrilled to have Federal Group confirm their commitment to achieving gender equity and an inclusive industry by partnering with us.”

This is about everyone – men, women and gender diverse people. It takes all of us, and a unity of purpose, to achieve true gender equity.”

WGHA strongly supports the business case that organisations advocating inclusiveness of all genders at all management levels are more innovative, more productive, and deliver better financial performance.

Ms Lee said change is needed with the industry lagging behind on several key metrics for gender equality, including that only 6% of CEO’s are women.

Ms Lee said that a gender diverse workforce assists a company to make better decisions by enabling greater diversity of thought.

Federal Group Chief Operating Officer, Nick Linnett, says creating industry leading brands is about delivering exceptional experiences for our customers.

“This means that we must have an organisation that is representative of the society that we live in.”

“Organisationally, performance is fundamentally underpinned by people. Without the capacity to bring the best possible people into the team and enablement of full representation, you are playing with one hand tied behind your back.”

Federal Group has joined The Star Entertainment Group, Aristocrat, SkyCity Entertainment Group, Crown Resorts, Redcape Hotel Group, ALH Group and Christchurch Casino in their support of an inclusive industry as the seventh partner of Women in Gaming & Hospitality Australasia.

 

WGHA is a not-for-profit organisation focused on ensuring gender equity and inclusivity across gaming, gaming-related and hospitality industries.
