The American Gaming Association (AGA) has announced the launch of a new programme titled Global Gaming Women (GGW) created to "nurture emerging female leaders in the international gaming industry".
 
The initiative to be co-chaired by Virginia McDowell, president and ceo of Isle of Capri Casinos and Patti Hart, ceo of International Game Technology will be an ongoing effort with a view to fostering stronger relationships between top female executives and promising managers.
 
“The Global Gaming Women initiative has been designed to promote a lasting mentorship culture throughout the gaming industry and I am honored to be part of the inaugural program,” Hart said.
 
“Leadership development is a never ending journey for all of us. Our ability to continually support each other, learn from each other, and grow as individuals, is a collective responsibility shared throughout the industry.”
 
The AGA plans to host additional GGW events throughout the year.
