Damn: "Inside the Culture of Sexism at Riot Games"
The story about the male employee presenting the same idea to a group of people that she had presented is actually terrible and really really concerning.
I had a friend working at a different gaming company and another friend at Twitch who told me similar stories....
"Both male and female sources have described seeing unsolicited and unwelcome pictures of male genitalia from bosses or colleagues. One woman saw an e-mail thread about what it would be like to “penetrate her,” in which a colleague added that she’d be a good target to sleep with and not call again. Another said a colleague once informed her, apparently as a compliment, that she was on a list getting passed around by senior leaders detailing who they’d sleep with. Two former employees said they felt pressure to leave after making their concerns about gender discrimination known. One former male employee said that Riot’s “bro culture” is more pronounced behind closed doors, and hurts men too: One of Riot’s male senior leaders regularly grabbed his genitals, the source said, adding, “If he walked into a meeting with no women he’d just fart on someone’s face.”
Riot Employees what do you think?
What do you think can be done to improve Riot and other gaming company culture of sexism?
