May is Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in the United States. This is a time for celebrating the societal and cultural contributions that generations of AAPIs have made, as well as to acknowledge and educate ourselves about the challenges they’ve faced throughout history. In honor of this month, we’d like to introduce you to five of our AAPI colleagues, all of whom contribute positively to life at 2K and other Take-Two labels on a daily basis, not only with their work, but also with the diverse perspectives and ideas that they bring to our team.
It's not every day that you get to work alongside an Emmy winner—unless you're on a team with Teddy Wright IV at 2K. Based in Los Angeles, Teddy is a Senior Manager of Live Services Content on the Creative Services team at 2K, currently focused on the ongoing seasons for NBA 2K22 and producing art for other 2K titles where he can. "I like to think of myself as a creative jack-of-all-trades, but I do illustration mostly because that's what I love, and that's where I've put most of my energy during my time here,"
For International Women’s Day, we wanted to recognize 5 inspiring women at 2K to share their personal career experiences working in games, and empowering others to break into the industry. As strong and consistent as any, the mission of our Women in Gaming ERG at 2K is to support, promote, and empower women of 2K. These 5 incredible individuals embody that, and are helping to foster the future of women in gaming.
