IGT helps support annual Responsible Gaming Education Week
July 30, 2012
International Game Technology (IGT) will celebrate and support the American Gaming Association's 15th annual Responsible Gaming Education Week from July 30 ‐Aug. 3. As part of this commemorative week, IGT joins with the gaming industry across the country to increase awareness about responsible gaming among employees, casino customers and the general public.
This year's “All In” campaign promotes the industry's corporate social responsibility efforts through the company's best ambassadors, IGT's employees. Connie Jones, IGT director of Responsible Gaming, will host Responsible Gaming Education Week initiatives at the Company's locations in the U.S. and throughout the world, which will enable the employees to carry the responsible gaming message into their communities.
“Responsible gaming is an enduring priority for our employees, from our top executives to our front line team members,” said Jones. “This year, as part of Responsible Gaming Education Week's ‘All In’ theme, we are seizing the opportunity to continue educating our employees and use them as our trusted responsible gaming ambassadors both in their professional lives and in the personal lives.”
Responsible Gaming Education Week was developed in 1998 by the American Gaming Association to heighten awareness of responsible and disordered gaming. During Responsible Gaming Education Week, IGT will distribute posters, brochures and educational materials along with hosting activities throughout their offices.
