Introducing Makaiya Brown, DE&I and Development Lead

January 05, 2023

My name is Makaiya Brown, and I’ve been Blizzard’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DE&I), and Development Lead since September 2021. A more inclusive culture results in better games, period. The most important pillar that drives lasting change is education; and I realize that for some people, education around DE&I topics is uncomfortable. Progress is also taking place at multiple levels organically—you have seen many Blizzard development teams making great strides in representation, accessibility, and player behavior recently. It is my hope that building a more inclusive workplace and, in turn, more inclusive games, will influence more understanding, care, and appreciation of people who we think are different from us.
