Many of us feel strongly about inclusion, diversity, equality as well as gambling problems in Canada. It brings joy to hear that more and more organizations recognize these severe problems and are putting in more effort to make improvements.
Recently a new partnership was formed between the Responsible Gambling Council of Canada (RGC) and the All-In Diversity Project (AIDP). Both organizations are working to achieve a better future for all Canadians.
Looking at other Commonwealth countries, it is strange that Canada wasn’t doing more to tackle gambling problems up until now. For example, have a look at the level of responsible gambling promotion reported by Solicitors Guru in the UK.
However, with the formation of this new partnership, it looks like Canada is prepared to do more to improve the situation with problem gambling in the country. RGC and AIDP plan to use responsibility, research, and data to create a problem-free industry in the future. Naturally, it won’t happen overnight, but it is a step in the right direction.
Christina Thakor-Rankin from the All-In Diversity Project and Shelley White from the Responsible Gambling Council seem to be on the same page when they talked about their goals. They want to use AI, machine learning and data science to help the organizations minimize harm and find blind spots in their approach to social responsibility.
In simple terms, it means that the Responsible Gambling Council will be able to explore the interests and needs of people that come from various backgrounds. Thanks to this research RGC will be able to offer better responsible gambling programs and strategies to players, regulators, and casino operators.
All-in-Diversity Project will be pushing the gambling industry to treat all players and employees with dignity and respect. It is impressive how much they helped other sectors in Canada since the launch of the project back in 2017. AIDP provides tools, such as Annual Reports, and produces whitepapers assisting industries in growing and flourishing.
AIDP workers are doing important work with the help of machine learning technology. It is interesting to see how fast they will be able to achieve the ultimate goal of complete equality, diversity, and inclusion at the workplace and beat gambling addiction problems in the country.
