In a letter to EA employees today, CEO Andrew Wilson emphasized the importance of fostering a diverse workforce at the company:

"Cultivating a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture that deeply values equality is at our core," he said. It fuels our creative process, it strengthens our communities, and enables us to deliver more amazing games and experiences that reflect the diversity of the world around us.

"While we've made some progress, we have much more work ahead of us to continue bringing greater representation into our company. We want to be transparent about our journey and our commitment to advancing inclusion in everything we do, and we will continue to share more about how we are accelerating our efforts."
