Global Gaming Women has had a busy few years since the organization declared its independence from the American Gaming Association. Founded under the AGA, the group decided it would be able to work much more effectively if it were independent. Phyllis Gilland, the president of GGW—she also serves as senior vice president and general counsel for Golden Entertainment—explains how the organization has grown over that time and why it’s such an important factor in the increasingly visible role of women in the gaming industry. She talks about GGW’s robust educational conferences and why all women in gaming should be members. She’s joined by Felicia Gassen, the executive director of GGW, at the Golden Entertainment offices for a chat with GGB Publisher Roger Gros in February.
