We connect players around the world through epic entertainment and support diverse and inclusive communities both within our games and beyond.
In 2022, we advanced this work by:
Launching our Inclusive Game Design (IGD) Team
Partnering with Reboot Representation to help increase the number of Black, Latina, and Native American women in technology through a $2 million grant
Investing $250 million through social impact money market vehicles
Supporting our ABK Gives Back charitable donation-matching program for employees, including 2:1 matches to non-profits aligned with our ENGs
Placing nearly 16,000 Veterans into high-quality jobs through the Call of Duty Endowment, with over 113,000 Veterans placed since 2009.
We continue to level up our ability to provide our communities with inclusive content and accessible experiences, protect player safety, and create impactful games that embrace differences.
We launched our Inclusive Game Design (IGD) Team in 2022 to ensure a world-class standard for game inclusion and accessibility. Through the expertise and dedication of our IGD Team, we are focused on ensuring the widest possible audience can enjoy our games, by encouraging characters and narratives that are both diverse and welcoming, while promoting positive gaming community interactions.
The IGD Team focuses on three pillars:
Representation - Striving for diverse and inclusive characters and narratives
Accessibility - Making our games available to the widest possible audience of players
Community - Promoting positive interactions and limiting disruptive online behavior in our player community
“Inclusive game design is key to me. I believe that having an inclusive mindset in the process of designing games should be a must moving forward in this industry and ABK is definitely setting the example in my opinion. From characters of multiple backgrounds to games of all sorts. From inclusivity in terms of culture to accessibility for everyone everywhere. We are always on the lookout for how we can make our games available to everyone!”
Nearly 400 million global players engage with our games for an average of over an hour per day when they play, which is why we appreciate our responsibility to create a safe gaming environment for all players. We work hard each year to further reduce inappropriate behaviors such as cheating, disruptive conduct, hate speech, discrimination, and harassment of every kind in our gaming communities.
Activision Blizzard empowers its employees to better the communities we serve through our high-impact philanthropic, volunteer, and investment programs.
In 2022, we invested $250 million in money market funds selected for their support of diverse and inclusive communities.
Founded in 2009 by company leaders and supported with Company funds, the Call of Duty Endowment helps Veterans find high-quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value that Veterans bring to the civilian workforce. In 2022, the Endowment reached an incredible milestone of funding the placement of 100,000 Veterans in high-quality jobs, two years ahead of its 2024 goal. Since the Endowment’s founding, the organization has provided more than $72 million in grants to leading Veteran employment nonprofit organizations in the U.S. and U.K.
