Dear Friends,

What a moment the year has been so far.  I, and Global Gaming Women (GGW), are incredibly grateful for your past generous donations. It has helped our efforts over the years to provide meaningful education and networking opportunities organized and executed to advance the career paths of thousands of women and supporters working in casino gaming.

GGW has been extremely active during the pandemic providing FREE educational opportunities to our members to stay connected, increase skills, and feel supported.  Your past donations are still providing countless women resources to continue to develop their professional skills while navigating through the unprecedented challenges of today’s world.  

Our robust programming includes the all-new Virtual Master Class Series, Trailblazers: Power of Questions, and a new forum, Conversations of Substance: Gender + Race in Gaming. Additionally, GGW restarted our socially distanced leadership conferences with the first held September 1 in Las Vegas, NV, and we are thrilled to offer virtual programming as part of G2E 2020. Finally, we continue to offer training and support for GGW’s Lean In Circles and are working toward offering a reimagined virtual Lean In Breakfast early next year.

It is with a heavy heart I share with you that, after ten years, GGW will not be hosting our beloved Annual Kick Up Your Heels event honoring the recipients of the Patricia Becker Pay It Forward Award this year. In its place, we are seeking a donation equivalent to the cost of a pair of new shoes; my original donation request, the first year we hosted this revered fundraiser, an annual reunion for many of our friends. PLEASE CONSIDER DONATING HERE GGW remains dedicated to its mission, and your donations, of any size, will allow us to continue to support our members in today’s environment.

On behalf of GGW, we thank you for your support and look forward to “Kicking Up Our Heels” together in 2021 to celebrate all we can accomplish together to support our members and our industry. 


 With Gratitude to our 2019 Kick Up Your Heels Sponsors
