(Reuters) -Activision Blizzard Inc’s board and external advisers said on Thursday there was no evidence to suggest that senior executives intentionally ignored or attempted to downplay reported instances of gender harassment.
California in July last year brought a lawsuit against the company, alleging it “fostered a sexist culture“.
Workers in November last year circulated a petition calling for the removal of Chief Executive Officer Bobby Kotick amid mounting criticism of the culture at the company.
In response, Activision’s board formed a Workplace Responsibility Committee to oversee its progress in improving culture.
