Florida Mayhem and Mutineers
"We are all Misfits at Misfits Gaming Group. We do things differently, challenge norms, and take risks - all made possible by a company culture that embraces diversity and inclusion. That strong culture enables every one of our employees to make better decisions by challenging each other and considering different viewpoints. Because that is a key to our success, it's important to us that everyone feels welcome and represented, whether they are staff, fans, or other members of our community. In order to achieve that we make it our responsibility to use our platform to promote inclusivity, diversity, and equality."
