There is no question that diversity and inclusion are business imperatives driving innovation and growth. To remain the gaming industry leader, IGT recognizes that we must transform our workforce – approximately 11,000 strong who serve customers in more than 100 countries – to reflect the diversity of our global customer base and the players who enjoy our products and services. Diversity and inclusion is a business imperative.
