Inside The Culture Of Sexism At Riot Games

I have a real problem with articles like this that quote anonymous sources. There is no way to verify ANY of the info given by an anonymous person that might, or might not, have ever worked for the company that is being libeled in this article. Overall, this article treats anything said by these anonymous sources in a matter-of-factly way while any response or statement from the company is treated as an "excuse." 😔

Throughout her three years at Riot Games, the company behind League of Legends, Lacy made it her mission to hire a woman into a leadership role. Lacy had heard plenty of excuses for why her female job candidates weren’t Riot material. Some were “ladder climbers.” Others had “too much ego.” Most weren’t “gamer enough.” A few were “too punchy,” or didn’t “challenge convention,” a motto you can find in Riot’s company manifesto and recruiting materials.
