Netflix is making sure an incident like the one with former chief spokesman Jonathan Friedland, who was fired over saying the N-word in a Netflix meeting, never happens again. The company has hired Vernā Myers as vice president of inclusion strategy.
According to the official release about Myers’ new role, she will “help devise and implement strategies that integrate cultural diversity, inclusion and equity into all aspects of Netflix’s operations worldwide.”
“For the past two decades, through The Vernā Myers Company, she has consulted with a wide range of major corporations and organizations on how to help eradicate barriers based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and other differences and to make more just, compassionate and productive work environments,” the release states.
