Global Gaming Women today announced its call for nominees for the 2018 Great Women Of Gaming Awards.
Great Women Of Gaming Awards, originally created by Casino Enterprise Management (CEM) Magazine in 2004, were designed to recognise and encourage outstanding achievements by women in the gaming industry.
In 2016, CEM transferred the Awards to Global Gaming Women. In keeping with the mission of Global Gaming Women, the Awards have been updated to broaden the awareness, strengthen prestige and celebrate the success of women in the worldwide gaming industry. Additionally, the Awards seek to engage more women in fields related to gaming and further Global Gaming Women’s goal of diversity in leadership.
“We are thrilled to be able to use such a powerful platform to recognize women’s extraordinary accomplishments,” said Phyllis Gilland, Chair & President of Global Gaming Women.
“These awards are unique as they celebrate the very best women in gaming at various stages in their careers throughout the world.”
The five award categories include Rising Star, Game Changer, Service Star, Leadership and Lifetime Achievement. There will be one award recipient in each category. Nominations are encouraged for women from casinos, lotteries, manufacturers, online gaming, sports betting, as well as other suppliers and vendors related to the gaming and lottery industries including law firms, marketing firms and more.
The nomination period is open now through 31 July and the award recipients will be announced at G2E USA in Las Vegas, 9-11 October.
