League of Legends developer Riot Games has issued an apology in response to workplace allegations of gender discrimination and sexual harassment from an investigative report released by Kotaku earlier this month.
Riot Games statement, titled Our First Steps Forward, marks the company's commitment to change toxic workplace habits that have been vocalized by past and current employees.
"For the past three weeks, we’ve been focused on listening and learning. As a company, we’re used to patching problems ASAP, but this patch will not happen overnight. We will weave this change into our cultural DNA and leave no room for sexism or misogyny. Inclusivity, diversity, respect, and equality are all non-negotiable. While there is much to improve, there is a tremendous amount of good at Riot that will drive this change. This is our top priority until we get it right."
