Activision-Blizzard 'Zero Tolerance' Harassment Policy, Other Changes


Activision Blizzard has announced a series of changes in response to its ongoing lawsuits over alleged harassment and discrimination.

  • On Thursday, CEO Bobby Kotick announced a 'zero tolerance' policy towards harassment or retaliation, promising that offenders "will be terminated immediately".
  • The company will also invest $500 million into initiatives aimed at hiring "diverse talent" and creating opportunities for "under-represented communities".
  • Additionally, Kotick promised more transparency and pay equity and said the company would waive forced arbitration for harassment claims.
  • Is this a good start for Activision-Blizzard, or are more changes needed? Will we see other game publishers adopt similar changes?
