Riot Games announced this week that it’s going to pay $10 million to all the women who worked at the company at any time in the last five years. That’s the negotiated settlement from a class action lawsuit filed by two women last year. West LA-based Riot Games makes video games and hosts e-sports tournaments. It has about 2,500 employees. But over the last year, it’s been hammered in the media with stories of having a sexism culture.
