Diversity, Equity, Inclusivity, and Accessibility
At Iron Galaxy Studios, we believe that diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility are the foundation of innovation, not an afterthought. This enables us to produce our best work. We’re working to become a leader in the gaming industry by evolving our approach to diversity, equity, inclusion, and antiracism.
Our commitment in this space focuses on three pillars:
We aim to provide continuous and culturally relevant education as well as resources that lead to measurable action.
We engage our internal and external partners to make actionable changes within our company and the video game industry.
A key component of our work is proving our impact. We will do this by using data to analyze our key strategic initiatives to determine success.
We’re great at what we do, but we are always striving to be better than we are today.
Employee Resource Groups
Employee-led groups of Iron Galaxy employees with shared affinities and life experiences organize to support our employees, our company culture, the local community, and the games industry. ERGs are encouraged to share ideas for how to make our industry a better place and lend their voice to the conversation about our company culture.
People who care deeply about our vision are organized into an action committee to take on special initiatives, evaluate the representation in the art that we create for games, and ensure that we’re giving back to our communities.
The perks we afford our people are guided by a perspective that not all our needs are the same. Our industry-leading Benefits provide different forms of support, different kinds of families, and different ways of living.
We believe that the best way to improve upon diversity in an industry that requires such unique skillsets is to start in the classrooms where those skills are learned. Through grants to partnered institutions, we’re making those opportunities more available to a diverse student body.
University of Central Florida
This work is important, and it touches the entire industry that we love, so we’re not going at it alone. To help make game development a career that more people can enjoy safely and fairly, we partner with amazing organizations with similar goals and values.
