BUILDING GREAT GAMES AND A MORE EQUITABLE FUTURE STARTS HERE
Our North Star
To become the most inclusive, equitable, and diverse entertainment and tech company where our differences are valued and celebrated, diversity is leveraged as a strength, and inclusion and inclusive actions are part of who we are.
Growing together, gaming together
For Ubisoft, putting diversity and inclusion at the heart of everything we do means providing an environment where employees can thrive, building open-minded communities where players can connect, and creating games that reflect the diversity of the world we live in. Our vision of diversity and inclusion is multidimensional.
We’ve designed a strategy centered around four pillars: colleagues, culture, content, and community.
We want to build the most creative, inclusive, and diverse teams across all fields. We will continue to increase representation in our company by building more inclusion across our systems and ensuring equal access to opportunities for everyone.
We will keep fostering a culture of inclusion where our teams feel seen, heard, and valued. To support this, we will empower global and local Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to support global teams as they develop their understanding of inclusion and strengthen belonging for all.
We will create gaming experiences that push representation forward by embedding diversity and inclusion across our processes, increasing representation in our teams, and offering access to resources that help teams to build more authentic inclusive, and accessible gaming experiences.
We will set the standard for inclusion for our teams, players, and partners, and will collaborate with leading organizations to expand our knowledge, grow our reach, give back to the community and champion inclusion in our industry.
