Our success comes from focusing on our people and our players. For us to operate at the top of our game in both areas, it is imperative that we champion diversity, equity and inclusion environment where everyone can show up as the best version of themselves motivated and comfortable to push our thinking in all new ways. As we look at our player community we properly reflect the diversity of our players in our teams, and in our thinking, in order to exceed their needs and expectations as they connect in our incredible games.

This culture journey is one that never ends; we will strive to improve every day. This is an essential global team effort that we will continue to refine together. I’m thankful for so many of our employees who passionately drive our DE&I efforts, and I’m inspired to do the work with all of you to positively impact our people and our players.

Senior Director, Franchise Talent Officer

Diversity in thought, experience, and people is the only way we can continue to evolve and grow as an industry leader. We have an opportunity to truly be game changers and create a place where our employees can continuously make an impact on our culture, our games, and our people.

Adrian Ledda
Director, Inclusive Game Design

DE&I is the core foundation of Inclusive Game Design, because we must first understand the richness, value, and range of human experiences, expressions, and identities in order to then help design gaming experiences that truly welcome all to play and enjoy. It is not always easy, and it is never finished. It can be a challenging topic for some to approach, and my purpose with Inclusive Game Design is to help make these conversations more open, relatable, and actionable.

Kaylee Barnes
Copy Writer, Marketing Creative

Community-building is a passion of mine, and I’ve found a fruitful environment here at Activision. My team views inclusivity as a collective effort; from a project’s ideation through completion, to standing up for and with each other. It takes a village and I’m very proud to be a part of this one.

Our Inclusive Game Design (“IGD”) team has the mission of embedding advocates, best practices, and innovations in all our games, to ensure that our games are the most diverse, welcoming, and inclusive. The option to view a range of accessibility features at the very start of a gaming experience is quickly becoming table stakes.

The three pillars of our IGD efforts are:


including making sure the widest possible audience can enjoy our games
