In 2021 the highest responsible Intel Diversity and Inclusion Officer, Barbara Whye, will become part of the Apple staff. In this sense, the news came directly from the offices of the Cupertino company.
The middle AppleInsider collects the news about this new signing of Apple that if all goes as planned he will take over as Christie Smith, which left the apple firm last summer specifically in June. Smith, did not last long in this position of Apple signed last 2017 replacing Denise Young and left the position recently.
An Apple spokeswoman was in charge of announcing the arrival of Whye to the position officially:
An engineer by training and a globally recognized leader in representation issues in the technology industry, Barbara has spent 25 years at Intel, helping the company make meaningful and lasting positive change. Now, she will bring her immense talent and deep experience to Apple, expanding our company-wide effort to recruit, develop and retain world-class talent, at all levels, that reflects the communities we serve.
There really are a lot of changes for a position that seems to be disliked by executives for various reasons. Hopefully Whye, he adapts well to the position and that Apple manages to consolidate the place with someone who does not abandon or get into controversy.
On the other hand, what does seem that the Cupertino company is improving is in the hiring of female executives for senior positions in the company, and in recent years the figures show this. The charge in Apple that Whye will have to make, is close to Senior Vice President of Stores and People, this time Deirdre O’Brien.
