Ubisoft Investigating Misconduct

An Update from Ubisoft has word from the publisher on the actions they are taking following recent allegations of misconduct in the gaming industry, which included accusations against some of their employees. They offer apologies, say they will be announcing additional measures in the coming days, and for those who seem to think that there's a rush to judgment involved, they explain the steps they are taking to investigate:
Concerning recent allegations raised against certain Ubisoft team members: We want to start by apologizing to everyone affected by this – we are truly sorry. We are dedicated to creating an inclusive and safe environment for our teams, players, and communities. It is clear we have fallen short of this in the past. We must do better.

We have started by launching investigations into the allegations with the support of specialized external consultants. Based on the outcomes, we are fully committed to taking any and all appropriate disciplinary action. As these investigations are ongoing, we can't comment further. We are also auditing our existing policies, processes, and systems to understand where these have broken down, and to ensure we can better prevent, detect, and punish inappropriate behavior.

We will be sharing additional measures that we are putting in place with our teams in the coming days. Our goal is to foster an environment that our employees, partners, and communities can be proud of –one that reflects our values and that is safe for everyone.

If you say, "You look nice today, Pam," or you ask a female "Would you maybe like to go for a beer after work?"--neither of those is sexual harassment. It's certainly not being "unprofessional." It's called "being social." I don't really care how a female might "interpret" something like that--it doesn't matter to me. Why? Because no man is a mind reader...;) I not only don't know what she is thinking, I can't know what she's thinking--unless, of course, I ask her a question or engage her in polite conversation. If she says, "Get lost buster, ya' bother me!" it's easy enough to take the hint.

Actually either of those is enough to get you into a discussion with HR these days at a modern office if someone complains about it. You wouldn't be terminated if it's a first offense but you would certainly have a chat. And frankly they would have a right to, the fact that some women have been patient with your awkward advances or ill thought out "compliments" doesn't change that. Their appearance is not for you to judge out loud in a work environment, how presumptuous of you to even think that's somehow appropriate. Frankly I don't think you work in an office because your notions of office dynamics seem straight out of a rom-com. And if you did you would have some inkling of how important yet fragile a career is and that some things are not worth risking.

And again there are plenty of ways to meet women that do not involve work. Women are literally everywhere, if you're so chatty and confident I'm sure you will have no issue meeting one outside of the office. Get a hobby or failing that get a dating app. I get it, social responsibility with dating is mostly on men to take chances but a lot has changed in the past 20 years. And work is no longer a smart or "safe" spot to do it for a variety of reasons. Stuff has changed, adapt.


That this is the case in many companies doesn't mean it's progression. I think this is going in the opposite direction of what feminism fought and fights for. I don't want to have to tip-toe around women, colleagues or not. I compliment men and women both. For the last 10 years it has never been to flirt with women. I don't want the thought police arm of HR fuck me over some kind thing I said because the company doesn't care about collateral damage to their new age regime. Where I live, women and men already are protected against the real bullies and harassment. Thankfully, they aren't yet protected against friendly folk saying friendly things. Perhaps I am preaching to the choir? It is hard to tell.
