Report: Activision Blizzard Calls Policy To Make Hiring More Diverse ‘Unworkable’
According to AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler, its Rooney Rule proposal is “clearly workable” as evidenced by other big companies that have adopted similar policies. “Diversity and inclusion at all levels is important for companies to succeed, particularly in industries where there has been a historic underrepresentation of women and minorities in senior level positions,” Shuler told Kotaku in an email. “We are pleased that many banks have adopted diverse candidate search policies, and we are now turning our attention to tech companies. Such policies are clearly workable given that many companies have adopted them for their boards and are now adopting them for their workforces."
