About Beanstalk

Our social enterprise fosters diversity & inclusion throughout the video gaming industry. We develop games that spin an exciting light on different cultures. We create career development opportunities for people from underprivileged backgrounds.

Social Good Games

We tell immersive stories to shift perceptions around different cultures.

Video games are a powerful form of media. But most games aren’t produced responsibly. They’re usually developed in unhealthy environments and can negatively affect everyone connected to a game in one way or another.  Games often misrepresent people from diverse backgrounds, cultivating stereotypes. 

We create a mindful & inclusive workplace culture in order to create healthy games that mindfully address social issues. All while telling stories with characters who positively represent people from different backgrounds.





Games + Social Impact

The game industry needs a lot more Diversity and Equity. Mindfully making games to empower different communities is a step that anyone can take to help remove barriers that people face in and outside of the gaming. Including but not limited to racial bias, exclusion, discouragement, and gatekeepers.


Diverse Hiring

Diversity goes far beyond ones skin color. Working with people who differ in values, beliefs, ethnicity, social class, race, gender, and mindset can help keep you on a path to success. 


Healthy Spaces

We envision a future where the game industry can provide a healthier space for it’s members to grow and develop not just games, but as human beings.

Meet the Founder

Isaiah Johnson is a Diversity Activist in the Bay Area. He carries out his work through the Video Game Industry where he Advocates for Diverse Representation, Inclusion, Mental Health, and Social Reform. 

 He developed a passion for game development in early childhood when he first realized that games were “actually made by real people.” Having already been passionate about helping others, Isaiah naturally developed a desire to create pathways for others to pursue their careers that excite them.

Isaiah’s drive towards social change was sparked and cultivated in Oakland, California. There, Isaiah has made a positive impact on several communities from granting awards to local change makers, to inspiring youth and adults through public engagement.  

Throughout his journey, Isaiah has grown to be painfully aware of the game industry’s lack of diversity and equity. As well as it’s lack of equity. As a developer of color from a low income community, Isaiah has had to overcome many challenges, barriers, and traumatic experiences that the game industry’s toxic culture has created.  Isaiah leads by example, using his actions and words to foster a more positive and kindly mindset throughout world of gaming.
