Stockholm-listed casino supplier NetEnt has given its support to Girls in Tech Gibraltar in an effort to encourage more women to enter the technology industry.

NetEnt will support the non-profit organisation in its bid to encourage more girls and women to pursue careers in technology through awareness raising activities in Gibraltar and other jurisdictions where the organisation operates.

"At NetEnt, we know that attracting the brightest talent is paramount to our business success, and this is one of the ways that we aim to foster and develop new talent in the industry," the company said.

"Gibraltar is also an important meeting point of the iGaming world and important representation of the UK market. GIT is not just for professional women. They rather exist for anyone with an interest in technology, startups and providing women with a platform for growth."

The partnership will also aid NetEnt in its bid to achieve equal gender representation at all levels of the company by 2020.
