Bronwen, President of WISE Las Vegas, and Co-Chair of GGW’s membership committee, stated that “There couldn’t be a better moment to celebrate the intersection of sports and gaming”
“While both industries were traditionally male-dominated, women now make an impact more than ever.” We are excited to recognize and honor that influence at Las Vegas’s first “Women of Inspiration” event, which will take place the day after International Women’s Day.
The Women of Inspiration reception will include a catered cocktail reception, followed by the acknowledgment of the honorees. Emcee Stormy Buonantony will host the ceremony, which will include live entertainment and enhanced production.
After the ceremony, guests can enjoy a networking reception at the stadium and also a tour of the stadium and a kick activation.
Cassie Stratford is the President of Global Gaming Women. She said: “We are thrilled to partner with Wise Las Vegas for the annual “Women of Inspiration”. The interconnectedness of gaming and sports has led to innovation and growth in the gaming industry. This is especially evident with the expansion and promotion of sports betting in the US, and the launch of Las Vegas-based sports-related events.
Global Gaming Women’s mission to support and encourage women in all areas of the industry is fulfilled by this opportunity: “The chance to meet to celebrate and to be inspired by women who have been so instrumental in the successful and responsible maturation our industry aligns perfectly.”
