In 1990, May 17 became a symbolic date for the LGBTQ+ community, when the World Health Organization (WHO) removed homosexuality from the list of mental disorders. Since then, much has been accomplished, but the work continues.
For Ubisoft, fostering a workplace that promotes diversity, inclusion, and respect is the right thing to do because it’s what makes us strong and unique. To mark this important date, the studio has developed and participated in a number of initiatives to raise awareness of these issues among the public and our colleagues.

Our colleagues were invited to participate in a micro-training session aimed at combating resistance to change by raising awareness of the experiences of people of gender diversity.
