Activision’s chief executive, Bobby Kotick, apologized for failing to “provide the right empathy and understanding” in the company’s initial response to the lawsuit.
J. Allen Brack, the head of Activision’s Blizzard Entertainment subsidiary, where many of the accusations in the lawsuit were centered, stepped down in August. Blizzard’s head of human resources, Jesse Meschuk, also left.
Activision said Ms. Hodges would “lead all aspects of human resources, including diversity, equity and inclusion, talent acquisition, employee experience, learning and development, compensation and benefits, and work force planning.”
Ms. Hodges said in the statement that she shared “the company’s belief that a work environment should welcome all perspectives, experiences and backgrounds.”
Also in the statement, Mr. Dube said, “I couldn’t be more excited to join this team and work together to continue building our inclusive culture and to expand our audiences.”
