Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Celebrating Pride: A Conversation with Ickay, Champion of Diversity at Entain Manila

At Entain, we're committed to fostering an environment where everyone feels valued and empowered to be themselves. This Pride Month, we'd like to introduce you to Ickay, a passionate advocate for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) based in our Manila offices. 

We believe exceptional service starts with exceptional people. Our colleagues aren't just skilled in their roles; they're passionate advocates who go beyond to make Entain an inclusive place to work - like Ickay. As a dedicated CRM Campaign Executive for Coral she thrives on crafting engaging email campaigns that deliver exciting promotions and offers to customers while upholding responsible gaming compliance.

What truly stands out for her is Entain's company culture: ​"Entain Manila is a respectful and welcoming environment, I love the people, the benefits and all the fun activities for employees."

Diversity Makes Us Stronger 

Ickay is a proud member of our recently rebranded employee resource group BeYou@Entain, a community dedicated to celebrating and promoting LGBTQ+ inclusion.

She has witnessed a positive shift towards inclusivity among her colleagues. "Everyone's becoming more conscious of equality and we're constantly reminded that despite our differences, we're all part of the same team, working in a place where everyone is accepted." 

Pride: A Celebration of Authenticity 

​For Ickay, Pride is about celebrating everyone's unique identity. It's a time to show support, love, and encouragement. This year's theme, 'Reflect, Empower, Unite,' resonates deeply with her as it’s about being your true self and knowing that you work for a welcoming and empowering employer. Here, everyone is valued for who they are. 

Finding Strength in Authenticity 

​Ickay shared a personal story of overcoming a challenge related to identity. "Coming out as a transgender woman in 2016 was difficult. But having a supportive partner was a huge blessing. She gave me the confidence to embrace my identity and celebrate my growth, being authentic is truly liberating." 

​Who inspires you? "My colleagues, they've shown me the importance of staying true to myself and embracing self-love." 

​Ickay's story is a testament to the power of inclusion. At Entain, we're proud to celebrate the diverse voices that make us who we are. Happy Pride Month!
