Denise Young Smith, Apple’s new vice president of diversity and inclusion, doesn’t believe being a minority or a woman are the only criteria for diversity, Quartz reports.
“There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blonde men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” Young Smith said on-stage at the recent One Young World Summit, held in Bogotá, Colombia.
Young Smith had been working as Apple’s VP of human resources since 1997 before moving to her new role earlier this May. The new position will involve overseeing Apple’s push to create a more diverse workplace.
