Ubisoft has named Raashi Sikka as vice president global diversity and inclusion, completing a milestone as the company works to strengthen its culture and to improve diversity and inclusion efforts both internally and throughout the entire videogame industry.

Working with the group’s global leadership, Raashi will have a broad mandate to lead and implement changes that touch on key areas of Ubisoft’s operations and its business. She will champion, promote and develop inclusion strategies and diversity initiatives across the group’s global footprint and within all functions. 

“Raashi’s experience in helping elevate diversity and inclusion strategies on an international scale will be a key in helping us move our workplace culture forward,” says Yves Guillemot, co-founder and chief executive officer, Ubisoft. “We are committed to making Ubisoft a more inclusive and diverse company. With Raashi’s counsel, insight and vision, and the involvement of the company’s management and all Ubisoft team

members, I am confident that Ubisoft can take its place at the forefront of Diversity and Inclusion in our industry and also play our part in the broader corporate world.”

While her role is designed to be flexible and broad, a major focus for Raashi will be the coordination and oversight of strategic planning for the design and implementation of various programs that seek to promote diversity and equity among Ubisoft’s employees globally. Reporting directly to Yves Guillemot, co-founder and chief executive officer, Ubisoft, Raashi will establish and implement a comprehensive D&I roadmap to enrich and support the company culture at all levels, from Human Resources to Editorial and Game development, Community and Marketing. Raashi’s appointment takes effect on Feb. 1.

"I am eager to start my new role at Ubisoft and embrace this opportunity to partner with colleagues throughout the company in all matters of diversity, equity and inclusion,” says Sikka. “A primary focus coming in will be to carefully listen to all voices that want to participate in improving Ubisoft’s values and culture, and I will count on the support of every Ubisoft team member to move the company forward. Video games have the power to promote the values of diversity and inclusion. I hope my work will help reinforce this and ensure the content created at Ubisoft is reflective of the different backgrounds, cultures, identities and stories the teams bring to work each day. Ubisoft’s leadership has demonstrated a real commitment to this, and I am excited about what we can achieve together."
