Diversity, Inclusion, & Culture

“Building a Riot Games where everyone can thrive.”​

We’re focused on two big work streams to make Riot a great home for people who love making games: setting a high bar for diversity and inclusion (D&I), and fostering a fair, collaborative, high-performing culture.

 

To get there, we’re driven by a few simple beliefs. We believe:

 

  • That when teams are both diverse and inclusive they win. Every time.

  • That leveraging our strengths, knowing our weaknesses, and being honest about both is the best way to succeed, whether that’s in the office or in a game.

  • That we must call out sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, ageism, religious discrimination, and bigotry of all kinds.

  • That work can be a place where you make lifelong friends, partner with clutch teammates, and embrace the joy of making games.

These beliefs will help us surface the best ideas, challenge the status quo, and ultimately make better games.

 

Sometimes we’ve fallen short of making these beliefs a reality. We launched this page so that everyone can see that we are backing up our words with actions and can keep track of our progress.

 

For our work in 2019, we’ve split our to-dos into two separate work streams: D&I and Riot Culture. These teams will work closely with one another, informing and supporting each other’s work. Click through below to learn more about the priorities for each work stream and the work ahead:
