Beginning February 1, 2021, Sikka will join Ubisoft and report directly to Ubisoft co-founder and CEO, Yves Guillemot. While the role is intended to be flexible, a major focus for the new VP will be to establish and implement a comprehensive diversity and inclusion roadmap to support Ubisoft’s company culture at every level.

"I am eager to start my new role at Ubisoft, and embrace this opportunity to partner with colleagues throughout the company in all matters of diversity, equity and inclusion,” says Sikka, who was previously Head of Diversity and Inclusion across the EMEA and APAC regions at Uber, and globally for Uber Eats. “A primary focus coming in will be to carefully listen to all voices that want to participate in improving Ubisoft’s values and culture, and I will count on the support of every Ubisoft team member to move the company forward. Videogames have the power to promote the values of diversity and inclusion. I hope my work will help reinforce this and ensure the content created at Ubisoft is reflective of the different backgrounds, cultures, identities and stories the teams bring to work each day. Ubisoft’s leadership has demonstrated a real commitment to this, and I am excited about what we can achieve together."

“Raashi’s experience in helping elevate diversity and inclusion strategies on an international scale will be a key in helping us move our workplace culture forward,” says Guillemot. “We are committed to making Ubisoft a more inclusive and diverse company. With Raashi’s counsel, insight, and vision, and the involvement of the company’s management and all Ubisoft team members, I am confident that Ubisoft can take its place at the forefront of diversity and inclusion in our industry and also play our part in the broader corporate world.”
