Super excited to join @Twitter next month as VP Diversity & Inclusion, joining an incredible team to make #InclusionImpact.
“Like others in the news and tech industries, I wondered why Twitter would hire a white male in a very public diversity position,” told NBCBLK via email.
Luckie, one of the many who have been highly critical of Twitter’s diversity struggles, said this hire only proves further that Twitter has a problem with diversity.
Not saying a white guy can’t be head of diversity but for a company that hires a majority white guys it sends the wrong message.
While he is not surprised, he is perplexed as to why Twitter execs are seemingly oblivious to their diversity issues and the potentially obvious solutions.
