Riot Games Introduces New Company Values Following Toxic Workplace Allegations
Today, League of Legends developer Riot Games has revealed new company values on its website following last year's allegations of rampant sexism and misogyny in the company's workplace.
The controversy resulted in gender discrimination lawsuits from current and former Riot employees. Riot Games apologized to both its fans and workers, stating that it would strive to improve company culture as best it could. These new values are one of its steps towards hopefully making a safer and healthier office environment.

Our values are our north star; the guide to who we want to be. They’re what we look to for help when we fall short of our goals, and the lens we use to evaluate every decision we make.
In 2012 we wrote our manifesto: a statement of who we believed we were as a young company still at the beginning of its journey. It served us well for many years, but didn’t evolve along with us. Today, we need values that represent who we want to be for our next chapter.
Below are our updated values. We talked to more than 1,700 Rioters, asking them who we need to be to deliver on our promise to players. To make these values true, we promise to institutionalize these values throughout Riot, so they become a part of every Rioter’s daily reality:
• We will continually invest in cultivating an environment where each and every Rioter is able to thrive and reach their peak performance.
• We will strive for fair and equitable processes that Rioters can rely on.
• Our leaders will live the values and actively promote them within their teams.
Our ambition is that Riot will be the best place to work for all those who are passionate about our mission.
According to Riot, these new values were put together following more than 1,700 conversations with its employees.
