Diversity Moves: Valeisha Butterfield Jones Appointed Global Head of Women & Black Community Engagement at Google
Another major diversity move hits Silicon Valley. Valeisha Butterfield Jones has been appointed as Google’s new Global Head of Women and Black Community Engagement. This is great news and another nod to Silicon Valley as it works to improve on diversity. Just last week, Facebook appointed retiring Amex CEO Kenneth Chenault to its board which made great waves and was positively received among many.
I look forward to seeing more and more diversity appointments coming out of Silicon Valley in the very near future. Congratulations to Valeisha Butterfield Jones in her new role at Google.
See this intro from Black Enterprise:
Google executive Valeisha Butterfield Jones will continue to advocate for diversity and inclusion in tech but on a new level and with a new title.
