Diversity & Inclusion
A great saga needs all sorts of heroes.
At King we share a passion for making the world playful.
In order to achieve this, it takes people with different skills, experiences, and world views working together. There’s no such thing as a typical gamer. That’s why we embrace and celebrate what makes us different rather than what makes us the same. We believe diversity is King.
We’re proud of our achievements so far. In 2019 we reached our target of 40% of new hires being female, and we’re determined to achieve fully gender balanced hiring by the end of 2020. And there’s lots more to do, that’s why our Inclusive Leaders programme and our Kicking Glass programme for women and non-binary Kingsters are blazing a trail in our industry, toward an industry as diverse as the players it serves.
Our Employee Networks help us to stay connected as individuals and as a company. Sometimes it’s sharing ideas and experiences other times it’s sharing a meal. They host everything from movie nights, lunch and learns, open forums, industry meet ups, to workshops.
We want the Kingdom to reflect the ethnic, cultural, and national diversity of our Kingsters, our players, job markets, and communities around the world.
Kaleidoscope is our employee network that focuses on this. They host diverse celebrations, shine a light on important cultural events and help to shape inclusion across the company.
King is a place where you can bring your whole self to work. The Royal Unicorns champion LGBT+ inclusion and pride across all locations. They organise events, represent King at Pride, and play an important part in helping us raise our awareness.
We’re out to crush bias and Women@King are leading the way. We believe in equal opportunities and helping our Kingsters excel through career support, networking events, mentoring and recognition.
