A few months after Jeffrey Siminoff left his position as VP of inclusion and diversity at Twitter, the company has brought on Candi Castleberry-Singleton to lead Twitter's Inclusion and Diversity team.


Castleberry-Singleton said in a statement to TechCrunch, "I'm so excited to join the team at Twitter to lead the Inclusion and Diversity efforts for employees and the Twitter community. I've spent much of my career leading organizational change and building I&D into core business projects, and I look forward to bringing what I've learned to Twitter and building on company's great progress!".

Candi Castleberry sent out a tweet confirming the same:


Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also tweeted a welcome message:

Castleberry previously founded the Dignity & Respect Campaign and formerly led the Inclusion and Diversity team at Motorola. Twitter also needed an experienced executive to come on board after the departure of Jeffrey Siminoff.

At this point, the appointment of Candi Castleberry could prove to be of great help. At present Twitter's workforce comprises of 57 percent white, 32 percent Asian, 3 percent black, 4 percent Hispanic/Latino, 3 percent multi-racial, less than one percent American Indian and Native Hawaiian in the US and 37 percent females worldwide.
