Black History Month at 2K is a celebration and tribute to the generations of Black people who have made outstanding contributions to our society while navigating adversity, persevering to lay a foundation of resilience, hope, victory, and knowledge of self. We recognize our Black@2K ERG community and their many contributions to 2K's "Come As You Are" environment, where people from all backgrounds feel welcomed, accepted and heard. Black@2K aims to leverage access and resources to contribute to the betterment of Black people within and beyond 2K.
Unidos Heritage Month, taking place annually from September 15 to October 15, is all about celebrating the vast and rich culture of Latinos, Chicanos, and Hispanics. "Even though we all identify with the same term, we all come from very different cultural backgrounds," says Visual Concepts Austin's Benjamin Setton. "We foster inclusion, diversity and tolerance so every member can feel comfortable in their environment." It's important to show others that they will be treated respectfully regardless of ethnic or cultural background.
This past summer, 23 interns took part in 2K's internship program at 2K's Novato office, learning the ins and outs of game publishing and marketing. Interning at any company is a fantastic opportunity to gain real-world experience and expand your network of contacts, and 2K values the chance to help foster up-and-coming talent and get fresh perspectives on our projects. Multiple teams took part to bring on interns for a variety of disciplines—subjects like Global Marketing Strategy, Applied AI, and User Research, to name just a few.
