We believe in celebrating the humanity of every individual. TPCi believes in a just and equitable world and that every person, employee, and fan has the unique skills, powers, and purpose to contribute to this common cause.
Our competitive advantage is in our collective talents and various backgrounds, and an inclusive environment brings us together in our shared mission to bring fun to fans around the world. We succeed in our mission with a culture where all people of TPCi thrive, and ideas are shared openly and respectfully.
TPCi is committed to upholding its culture dedicated to inclusivity, which constantly celebrates diverse perspectives—where voices are heard, and every employee can be their authentic self. We maintain a safe environment grounded in respect and civility for all.
¡Bienvenidos! We are a group of Latinx/Hispanic employees who are united by experiences, food, language and so many aspects of our cultures. We come together as a familia which means family in Spanish and Portuguese, and our purpose is to foster the professional development of our members in the interactive entertainment industry, as well as to facilitate recruitment and retention of our talent, while promoting awareness and inclusion of the Latinx/Hispanic community and culture.
We are The Pokémon Black Diaspora (TPBD) Employee Resource Group! Our aim is to aid in the creation of an inclusive company culture by providing a supportive and uplifting community for Black employees throughout TPCi. We’ll achieve this through education, community development, recruitment, and engagement with folks – inside and outside the office. We want to create a place where every Black employee has a space where they can collaborate, relax, and empower each other throughout their daily lives. Black excellence and Black representation!

At the TPCi Parents ERG, we’re building off the love for children and family exemplified in the Pokémon brand in order empower parents to thrive both at work and at home!
Parenthood is an ever-evolving journey that intersects all aspects of life and comes in many shapes. This group recognizes that by improving support for parents within TPCi, we will attract and retain talent and improve employee engagement among those who identify as parents. This will be done through advancing company-focused initiatives such as advancing resources and benefits while providing speakers and coaching. We will also promote networking initiatives and a community of support.
