Our Commitment
Video Games are a product of the people who create them. We believe that diversity is essential to the success of companies like ours. Iron Galaxy is committed to improving our industry with inclusive development processes. This crucial initiative also improves representation in the final product, helping us to create worlds that are welcoming to all players.

Highlighting Voices
Some of our people have shared their perspectives on our efforts to create a healthy, comfortable, and diverse work environment that allows everyone to thrive doing what they love. These are their stories.

Building An Inclusive Culture

"I feel honored that so many of our employees feel comfortable sharing this aspect of themselves with us as a company."

Chelsea Blasko stands by Iron Galaxy’s value of “picking up a shovel” — the idea that every employee’s work and voice contribute to the company. This applies to its open culture of shifting roles and opportunities, as well as its inclusive policies. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, Blasko recognizes the power of intentional acts in establishing a DEIA-focused foundation. In that spirit, Iron Galaxy offers diversity scholarships at two universities, has established DEI protocols for processes such as resume and content reviews and trains managers to be coaches for personalized development.

Developing Games That Better Represent The Players

"Research shows that diverse teams consistently outperform teams with less diversity."

Rejess Marshall is familiar with the DEIA problem in video games. “The industry has been scrutinized for lack of diverse hair options, leaving underrepresented groups struggling to create characters that look like their actual appearance,” she pointed out. An inclusive product is only possible with a diverse team, which is why Iron Galaxy’s ERGs are given a voice in the game development process, to ensure such components are integrated. New hires also go through touchpoints that reinforce the company’s position on inclusivity and belonging, including company-wide events and DEIA onboarding.

Cultivating Belonging Through Diverse Experiences

"As someone who's mixed ethnicity-wise, I've had trouble sometimes connecting with certain cultures. Here, I am welcomed with open arms."

ERGs are a core aspect of Iron Galaxy’s DEIA policies, one that Keenan Moralicz appreciates as an active participant himself. He’s a member of both the Latinx and AAPI ERGs, and the events held by both organizations have enriched his sense of belonging. As a community manager, Moralicz’s also had the chance to interview fellow employees about their experiences — in and out of the gaming industry — for the company’s internal blog. What he found was a community of diverse perspectives he hasn’t found anywhere else.

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 the issues that shape our culture.

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.
Employee Resource Groups
Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) at our company serve as supportive networks for various employee demographics, fostering a workplace culture that values diversity and inclusion. These groups are formed around shared characteristics or life experiences, such as gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or interests. Take a look at each of our ERGs and events hosted by them below.
Press Start
This is our dedicated initiative that focuses on enhancing diversity in the video game development industry. This program shares knowledge and builds pathways for marginalized communities to attain a career in games. Press Start is a key part of our commitment to promoting a more inclusive and diverse gaming world.
Participating in the communities where we live and work is an important component of our mission. Whenever possible, we seek to express our pride with people who share our values. Encouraging people to be their authentic selves and surrounding them with the loving support of their peers is how we live our values and lead by example.
