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.

I'm new here Happy2 , I usually don't drop my 2 cents online because most either don't pick it up or they go on the attack, it is the internet after all. Decided to make the plunge and make an account cause I view this website a lot. I strive to better myself, I used to be one of those guys who hated how everything was changing, not wanting to connect, but then I thought hard about how all the systems are moving in society, and realized I have nothing to be concerned with. Also, no one man is an island. If people gain some enlightenment, then that's a good thing, I try to stay by the rule of "do not act with malicious intent".

Welcome!
