A committee that is committed to ‘eliminating all forms of harassment and discrimination’ within Activision Blizzard.
The board of directors of Activision Blizzard announced the creation of a workplace accountability committee to oversee its efforts to improve its culture. The committee will initially be composed of two independent directors of the board of Activision, Dawn Ostroff, who will serve as president, and Reveta Bowers.
The committee will be responsible for overseeing “the company’s progress in implementing its new policies, procedures and commitments to improve workplace culture and eliminate all forms of harassment and discrimination.” This includes requiring that “management develop key performance indicators and / or other means to measure progress and ensure accountability”. CEO Bobby Kotick, chief people officer Julie Hodges – who joined in September – and chief compliance officer Frances Townsend will have to provide “frequent progress reports.”
The announcement also pointed out that, from October, Activision’s board of directors will meet every two weeks to review progress related to workplace culture and will also have to produce weekly written reports.
It is worth noting that this statement is aimed at investors, some of whom have also called for Kotick’s resignation.
