Diversity and Inclusion

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.

Our Employee Resource Groups

At The Pokémon Company International (TPCi), we believe in inclusion and belonging! Alongside our Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and our Company Core Values, our Employee Resource Groups help us all become the very best (like no one ever was)!

Familia Pokémon logo

¡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.

The Pokémon Black Diaspora logo

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!

The Rainbow Gym

Welcome to the Rainbow Gym, TPCi’s official Employee Resource Group on a mission to celebrate LGBTQIA+ employees! In addition to creating a safe place for queer folks and allies, we provide helpful resources to allow for open discussions and internal support, with the understanding of the intersectionalities of the larger community. The Rainbow Gym works with leaders and departments to promote inclusion at all levels, including initiatives related to engagement, talent acquisition, professional development, and community-building.

Women of Pokémon

Women of Pokémon (WxP) is committed to empowering all TPCi employees who identify as women, non-binary people, and all people of marginalized genders. WxP will partner widely with a broad group of cohorts to identify and promote equity. Specifically, WxP strives to achieve equity in development, recruitment strategies, retention, and networking opportunities for all people of marginalized genders at TPCi. WxP’s focus is to identify and help activate areas that will provide increased internal support for employees while serving as a helpful resource and fostering a sense of safety for the WxP constituency.

TPCi Parents

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.

The ANHPI of Pokémon Employee Resource Group

The ANHPI of Pokémon Employee Resource Group aims to support and inspire our Asian, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific-Islander communities and raise awareness on ANHPI issues by creating an inclusive and socially just environment where all forms of diversity are respected and recognized as integral to TPCi. The ANHPI of Pokémon has the unique privilege to represent a wide group of people — one that encompasses many different cultures, traditions, and experiences. We are eager to share the richness of this community further through education, networking, and engagement.
