Prior to the event, WIG announced that Ms. Sullivan had been selected as one of eight finalists for the Leader of the Year Award, but there was no pre-event disclosure of the Industry Pride nominees. Thus, Ms. Sullivan stated that she was both “surprised and humbled” when her name was called as the recipient of the evening’s most prestigious award. Ms. Sullivan added, “I was stunned. I immediately thought about our team of 1,800 people back at Atlantis. This award is a tribute to the entire Atlantis team that made this possible. This is their award.” Ms. Sullivan was the only United States nominee to receive an award at this prestigious event.
The Women in Gaming Awards (“WIGs”) were created to highlight exceptional women working in the gaming industry and to recognize role models who show that the industry provides exciting career opportunities for women throughout the world.
