Blizzard boss Jen Oneal was paid lower than her male colleague before resigning

Blizzard co-head Jen Oneal announced her resignation earlier this month, just three months after taking office. She said she was “inspired by the passion of everyone in the studio” and turned to a more industry-wide approach to increase diversity and inclusion. But According to the new IGN According to reports, part of her motivation is that her salary is lower than that of peer Mike Ybarra, and Blizzard is obviously unwilling to resolve this imbalance.

In a message to Blizzard employees, Ybarra said that he and Oneal told Activision Blizzard’s management that they wanted the same pay because they did the same job. He explained that their pay was different because when they were offered to lead Blizzard’s job, they signed a separate existing contract.
