Daniel Alegre, Chief Operating Officer of Activision Blizzard, sent a special letter to all employees of the company. In it, he spoke about the companys success in increasing the proportion of non-white people and underrepresented ethnic groups, as well as women and non-binary persons. Alegre commented on the recently published work report companies on diversity, inclusion and equality.
According to him, in all global branches of the company, employees who identify themselves as women make up 24% of the total number. In the United States, 36% of employees identify themselves as members of small ethnic groups.
The company has set a goal to increase representation of women and non-binary people to 50% in 2022, and over the next five years years, they should account for more than one third of the state. To this end, it is planned to appoint new inclusion leaders, invest in training programs, and evaluate leadership for success in increasing the proportion of women and non-ferrous employees.

In his opinion, the manifestation of diversity and inclusion is not just to repaint the white characters, but to come up with a great story about how and why non-white people got into Stormgard.
