Petition for Bobby Kotick To Resign


 

In recent months reports of misconduct and inappropriate behavior have plagued Activision Blizzard.

  who is Bobby Kotick?  

The complaints are threats of violence, harassment, bullying, sexual misconduct and bullying.

The accusations are not in accordance with the recent post that Kotick promised to his employees saying that he promised to “create the most welcoming and inclusive workplace”.

  can I sign Bobby Koitck petition?    

Included in the message is the company’s dedication to move forward without any tolerance for inappropriate behavior.

The complete message is available here.

Employees of Activision Blizzard do not believe that Kotick is able to lead the company in the right way. What they did is they staged a walkout and signed a petition for the CEO to resign.

The petition reads: “We, the undersigned, no longer have confidence in the leadership of Bobby Kotick as the CEO of Activision Blizzard. The information that has come to light about his behaviors and practices in the running of our companies runs counter to the culture and integrity we require of our leadership–and directly conflicts with the initiatives started by our peers. We ask that Bobby Kotick remove himself as CEO of Activision Blizzard and that shareholders be allowed to select the new CEO without the input of Bobby, who we are aware owns a substantial portion of the voting rights of the shareholders.”

 

As of this post, there are almost 1800 signatures in the petition already. The complete list of names is available here.
