A Diverse and Inclusive Workplace

In the words of our founder Randy Pitchford, “If we are going to entertain the world, we need to be of the world and create opportunities for all types of team members.” Gearbox is committed to creating a safe, diverse, and inclusive environment for all of our team members. 

“As a queer woman in the industry, Gearbox has shown me nothing but support, guidance, and how to grow as a valued member of a great team. I feel inspired to explore my ideas while being a part of an awesome and healthy work environment created and sustained by Gearbox.” – Halibel Tulppo, CS Manager and Co-Chair of Gearbox’s LGBTQIA Working Group

We support and encourage team members to foster a community of inclusivity for all our colleagues. Gearbox has active groups for Latinx, Asian/Pacific Islander, LGBTQIA, Women, and Black and Brown to provide a support system, engage with the community, host activities, and spend time together. 

Gearbox is honored to be recognized for our work to create a culture of inclusivity:

  • In 2019, we were awarded the Equality Texas Business Leadership Award in recognition for our advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights.
  • Gearbox was also nominated as a “Best Place to Work” by the Dallas Morning News and the Dallas Business Journal.

Standing Up for Our Team

We have a track record of standing up for our Gearbox family in the face of adversity. In 2017, Randy Pitchford joined other tech leaders in writing letters to Governor Abbott urging him to reject the ‘bathroom bill’ that would regulate bathroom use for transgender Texans. We also took a stand once again in 2021, fighting against bills in the Texas legislature that would inhibit voting rights and discriminate against transgender people. Not only do we fight for what is right within the walls of the Gearbox studio, we also actively work to keep Texas an attractive and equitable place for Gearbox artists, developers, storytellers, and professionals. As Randy Pitchford has said, our team at Gearbox “overwhelmingly supports non-discrimination protections and seeks to live in states that reflect the diversity and inclusion they value.”

A Culture of Safety and Respect

We condemn all forms of harassment and discriminatory behavior, and we have clear policies that prohibit these actions. We are committed to ensuring Gearbox is a safe, equitable, and productive workplace for all our team members, and are always striving to create a culture of inclusion and respect.
