SEGA matches staff donations to nonprofits that “support reproductive rights”

It may seem hard to believe, but SEGA is actually one of the most progressive companies out there. As a large-scale enterprise in Japan, SEGA has LGBT+ inclusive environments, recruitment opportunities, and efforts to be more inclusive of sexual minorities in the workplace. It was even one of the companies that took part in the LGBT+ job fair/educational seminar which took place on March 30th.

The progressive nature of SEGA was pretty much known since the release of Persona 5 and before the announcement of Catherine: Full Body. While they certainly didn’t bring large-scale changes, they certainly provided opportunities for various people outside of the scope that Japan has to offer.

Because of this attitude, it should come as no surprise that SEGA has recently stood with employees trying to challenge Roe’s recent upset against Wade. The company recently announced that it will match employee donations made to nonprofit organizations in support of reproductive rights. The company also released a statement regarding its stance on this controversial climate in law:

At Sega, we stand for equality and believe that the ability to make choices about your body is a human right. We match employee donations to Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice America Foundation, and other accredited nonprofits supporting reproductive rights selected from among our team members.

With that, SEGA joins companies such as Bungie, Innersloth, Insomniac Games, Ubisoft, Niantic, Sony’s Santa Monica Studio and The International Game Developers Association in the increasingly vocal disagreement against the Roe v Wade change. All of the above companies have remained supportive of reproductive choice.

We will continue to update the story as it develops. Meanwhile, a new AMD Adrenalin Edition driver was launched last week. Version 22.6.1 is mainly dedicated to the recently released F1 22 racing game. Moreover, a breakthrough in the world of emulation has been made as a new version of PlayStation 4 fpPS4 emulator has been shared online recently, introducing better commercial game compatibility.
