Last week I tweeted; if you haven't seen it, here it is
So, let's give this another go:
Firstly, I believe diverse teams create better products and one of the greatest strengths of the esports community is the reach we have all over the world; there are more voices, ideas, and perspectives. Diversity isn't just about skin colour, of course, and is representative about nationality, sexuality, gender, identity, ethnicity, and other factors such as disabilities. The list goes on.
Secondly, I am thrilled to see the LEC broadcast continue to thrive and complete their inaugural weekend with a beautiful show. I adored my time working on the broadcast and know they will continue to deliver an incredible experience.
I am not suggesting anyone be replaced; the broadcasts are not at maximum capacity. I am advocating for the inclusion of more people, and for that inclusion to create more diversity-and, as stated in the initial tweet, explicitly across all major LoLesports broadcasts.
We need to talk about diversity because of the LPL, LCK, LEC, and LCS majority of on-air talent has been white, primarily from Australia, the UK and America. We know this isn't representative of the whole LoLesports community, and I would love to see more voices and talents amplified, especially at the highest level of broadcast where representation can matter so much.Загрузка...
I believe the most recent talent announcement for the LCS is an excellent step in the right direction with the inclusion of voices like Primal, Emily, and Raz.
I would love to see the European Masters, NLC, and the UKLC casters included as rotating guests to help get more analysts and perspectives on the desk as well as exposure and experience working with the premier broadcast.
These aren't simple issues to tackle and I'm currently working on initiatives behind the scenes that will (hopefully) be announced soon. I've always been an advocate, internally and externally, for my peers and will continue to do so.
I stand behind my ideals surrounding this topic but I recognize that by using over the top language it was interpreted in many ways vastly different from my initial point. Moving forward on topics as important as this, I'll be sure to use more specific and serious language.
Thank you for reading.
