The American Gaming Association (AGA) has unveiled www.globalgamingwomen.org, a new website for its Global Gaming Women (GGW) development initiative. Launched at Global Gaming Expo 2011 last October, GGW was created to allow women in the international gaming industry to share ideas, discuss best practices and take advantage of mentorship opportunities.

This dynamic website has a number of tools designed for women in the gaming industry to connect, with the goal of advancing their careers. For example, a key element of the new site is “Coffee Break: Gaming Leadership Strategies in 1 Minute or Less,” a video series showcasing female industry leaders offering insight and advice on career and business in a relatable and easily accessible format. Six women are currently featured on Coffee Break, with plans to add more professionals as the site builds a growing library of the brief video interviews.

“Over the past year, Global Gaming Women has been connecting both experienced industry leaders as well as up-and-coming professionals,” said Virginia McDowell, president and CEO of Isle of Capri Casinos and the co-chair of GGW. “With our new Web site, we can strengthen and broaden this forum of growth and development. Women in gaming now have a new creative tool to advance their careers like never before.”
