INCLUSIVE, DIVERSE, DETERMINED

OUR MISSION STATEMENT

We give control to bold characters in the gaming community, helping create a diverse collective that positions our industry as the world-class sport that it is.

SUPPORTING & ELEVATING

WOMEN IN GAMING

Women are here to play. And while esports still favors men, we’re changing the game. We enlist female players and leaders while cementing our commitment to innovative programming and education that celebrates women.

BLACK GIRLS CODE

Black Girls Code provides young and pre-teen girls of color the opportunities to learn in-demand skills in technology and computer programming. We’ve partnered with BGC to create a Young Women in Gaming Summit.

PROMOTING & BUILDING

gaming for all

We fight to make our space a place for all. And while we’re not all the same, we all are equals. Your experiences, beliefs, bragging rights, and talents bring evil to life

YouGov

We partnered with YouGov to explore toxicity in gaming and how it affects everyone in the industry. Now, we’re developing a plan of action to clean it up and stomp it out.
We go beyond gaming and throw down on the issues around us. Casters, Evil Geniuses, and players from all sports talk about everything from LGBTQIA+ inclusivity to the politics of race.

EP2

LGBTQIA+IN GAMING

In this latest #LiveProud podcast episode, Erin Ashley Simon and HelloKittyRicki are joined by guests @Froskurinn and @BreannaStewart to discuss many of the issues surrounding the LGBTQIA+ community in gaming, sports and life in general.

FOSTERING AN ENVIRONMENT TO

LIVE EVIL AND LIVE WELL

Everyone has different needs, whether they’re a player or a fan. So, we take a diverse approach to supporting the people in our organization and our community. We’ve partnered with Gamers Outreach, who give hospitalized children access to video games, helping them cope with long-term visits. We’ve created a speaker series with Dr. Lindsey Migliore of GamerDoc to advance the understanding of esports medicine. And we won’t stop there.

CREATE GAME-CHANING

partnerships

Diversity and Inclusion are a key part of our core values. So, we partner with creativity, innovation and human connection. We lead by example and advocate for a better, shared future.
With pride. We welcome all. We live evil. And we always will. If diversity and inclusion matter to you as much as they matter to us, please reach out with questions.
