Uber Chief Brand Officer Bozoma Saint John has called on white men to make noise about diversity in the workplace. CNN reports that Uber chief brand officer Bozoma Saint John has called on white men to encourage diversity in the workplace during a panel at the South by Southwest film festival. I want white men to look around in their office and say, Oh look, theres a lot of white men here. Lets change this,' said Saint John. She claims that its not the responsibility of minorities to encourage diversity: Why do I as the black woman have to fix that? Theres 50 of you, theres one of me. Yall fix it. Everybody else needs to make the noise I want white men to make the noise, said Saint John.
Saint John was hired to Uber in June shortly after the company faced a number of scandals, including criticism for lack of diversity amongst its executives. Ubers former CEO Travis Kalanick resigned from the company in June, the same month that Saint John joined the company. Uber released a diversity report in March 2017 that many felt reflected poorly on the company as it showed that the company had no technical leaders who are black or Hispanic. Across non-technical leadership roles, 3.7 percent of leaders were black, and 1.2 percent were Hispanic.
Saint John criticised Silicon Vallitsor its lack of diversity saying The number of African Americans in Silicon Valley is dismal. Saint John has worked at a number of Silicon Valley companies including Apple Music where she held a marketing leadership position, Its not up to one company its up to the entire industry to make sure that we are moving the conversation forward.

What a bozo ...
Be a self-hater if you’re white, and a racist if you’re black. Nice message.
The Cavs are sitting around in the locker room saying “There’s too many black men here.”
Well, at least she fills out a shirt. Wonder if she can make a good sammich?
Ive never had a white Uber driver.
Looking at that picture makes me think of Don Imus.
So she's an affirmative action hire.
If he’s a white male, let him give up his job first in the name of diversity.
A boss should set the example, right?
Biytch, they ain’t no White boys in yo office! Did you look around and see any White boys? dey ain’t be none! because the major corporations have chosen to deny jobs to White men. A fact.
yep, gotta be cuz discrimination, no doubt
I want minority racists to burn in hell.
It’s a scam designed to introduce criteria other than merit into our evaluation of people and institutions. There, is that noisy enough for you?
“Ive never had a white Uber driver.”
What do they tend to be?
I don’t use Uber so I know little about it,although my grandkids use it.
I want white men to look around in their office and say, Oh look, theres a lot of QUALIFIED PEOPLE here. Good job, keep it up!
I look around my office and I say, "Oh look, we have the best and the brightest here, regardless of sex or skin color.
Let's not change a thing to accommodate some idiot who can't compete - never mind so we can be "diverse".
LOL, I am all on board with this, but I don't think I am going to make the kind of noise they want to hear!
Diversity for the sake of diversity itself is one of the most STUPID and illogical things to have ever impacted society.
It will be a long time if she is waiting for me. They followed the Libs down the hole, let the Libs help or maybe actually help themselves.
“Hey boss, we should hire some under qualified people to work with us I’ll pick the slack up for them and you don’t even have to pay me extra.”
If they are even close to qualified they’d be hired in a second to meet the goals of human resources across the country.
Yes and a damned slutty, STUPID, RACIST bi**h to boot.
