Blizzard on Diversity Improvements

Blizzard News introduces Makaiya Brown, the company's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I), and Development Lead since September 2021. Blizzard has famously fallen short in these areas, so she has her work cut out for her. Here's a bit on how things are progressing:
Progress is also taking place at multiple levels organically—you have seen many Blizzard development teams making great strides in representation, accessibility, and player behavior recently. And this year to date, 31.5% of our new hires self-identify as women–that’s just the beginning. We are grateful for the efforts of individuals and teams who have immediately embraced our goal of increasing diversity within Blizzard, and we are committed to a continuous focus on improvement in this area.

As a leader in DE&I, seeing this kind of action from individuals en masse in their areas of influence is incredibly moving. It is the kind of work that adds up to real change. Our work at Blizzard is not a matter of putting in a bunch of corporate training programs and calling it a day–this is a large-scale effort at the business, team, and individual levels, that will continue to be iterated upon and evolved to level up the core of who Blizzard is.

"self-identify as women" = liberal hipster PR whitewash term for transexuals.

Equal rights is wonderful, but quota driven diversity BS accomplishes nothing but to increase the numbers of morons who flock to Faux News politics.

It's like saying a zoo is not a zoo unless it has an equal number of every species on the planet.

Meanwhile all Blizzard products continue to devolve towards being mobile games.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride! - HT
