Riot Games Celebrates Black Leaders at AfroTech 2022

January 05, 2023

This was our second year at AfroTech but the first time we attended the event in person after holding a panel during virtual AfroTech last year. Riot Noir members got the chance to personally meet with many of the estimated 25,000 attendees who made their way to Austin for the conference. This was a chance for Riot to show up in this space at a time when Black people within the tech industry are seeking ways to be seen and heard. To be a visible part of this experience next to other giants in the industry was a crucial building block for Riot Noir and Riot Games to express our dedication to uplifting these voices. Their conversation highlighted the importance of increasing access for the next generation of Black gaming professionals, including the recent Cxmmunity and Riot Games HBCU Kickback event in Atlanta, Georgia that brought together 250+ HBCU students to hear from Riot leaders and Riot Noir members.
