伊丽莎白Nieto是亚马逊的全球多样性,股权和包容团队的领导者,正在突然离开西雅图科技巨头,以在不到两年的角色的角度下的新工作,引起了在纽约的愿望更接近她的家人。

She will be replaced on an interim basis by Alfonso Palacios, a 15-year veteran of Amazon, according to an internal memo to employees, obtained by GeekWire. Palacios, an Amazon vice president, currently oversees the company’s Recruiting Engine team, which develops internal technology used by Amazon’s recruiters.

Nieto, who joined Amazon in April 2019,previously workedas a human resources and DEI leader at MetLife for almost seven years, and Citigroup for nearly 20 years.

Her departure comes amid heightened scrutiny of diversity, equity and inclusion at major American companies, part of the renewed push for racial justice across the country over the past year.

亚马逊CEO Jeff Bezos has beena public champion of the cause种族平等,提示calls over the past year for Amazon to do moreto address issues of racial injustice inside the company, including提案加上新的亚马逊领导原则与包含有关。

Most of the executives on Amazon’ssenior leadership team是白人。该公司已启动各种各样的程序近年来,解决了种族不公正,促进了公司和技术产业的多样性和股权。

“During her time at Amazon, Elizabeth has helped us establish bold companywide commitments and strengthened systems to monitor our collective progress in driving equity, increasing diversity, and building an inclusive culture across Amazon,” wrote Beth Galetti, Amazon’s senior vice president of human resources (now known inside Amazon as People Experience and Technology), in the internal memo. “Elizabeth has been an influential voice and effective leader in helping advance our work on this incredibly important issue.”

亚马逊’s最新劳动力多样性报告, in December 2019, found that 26.5% of its U.S. employees identified as Black/African American, and 18.5% as Hispanic/Latinx. Women earned 99.3 cents for every dollar earned by men in the same jobs, and minorities earned 99.1 cents for every dollar earned by white employees in the same jobs, according to the company.

The company plans to search for a long-term leader for the Global DEI team. Galetti’s memo called Palacios “uniquely positioned to oversee this work in the interim,” saying he has been “a dedicated partner as we’ve developed our DEI goals and strategy and is looking forward to continue to move this work forward.”
