LAS VEGAS (October 14, 2021) – “Raise your hand to get the opportunity to do the work you find interesting, even if you feel like you know nothing about it. That’s the only way you learn.” So says Cassie Stratford, Global Gaming Women’s new president, in an appearance with GLI CEO James Maida on Gaming Laboratories International’s (GLI®) Illuminating Conversations web series.

The new episode premiered today and is available for streaming exclusively at

In addition to her volunteer role as GGW president, Stratford is VP of Legal Affairs and Assistant General Counsel for Boyd Gaming Corporation, and in this inspiring new episode, Stratford and Maida lend their insights into the future and how diversity will benefit and shape the gaming industry over the next decade.

The pair also discuss the role of mentorship and volunteerism, and how lessons Stratford learned as a new lawyer guide her approach to business and life. “What’s fantastic is it’s becoming less unique to look around a room and see a lot of female faces and, more generally speaking, a lot more diversity,” Stratford says.
