Nike Promotes Two Female Employees To Executive Level Following Diversity Scandal

Apr 30, 2018 | Ian Stonebrook |



Following news of six Nike executives leaving the company in wake of a diversity scandal tied to sexual harassment and upward mobility ceilings affecting women, Nike has just promoted two female employees to fill since vacated high-level positions.

Amy Montagne will now serve as vice president and general manager of global categories, while Kellie Leonard has been promoted to chief diversity and inclusion officer. As alluded to, both promotions fill seats vacated by executives that left during the diversity scandal in what seems to be a solid step to change the corporate culture in Beaverton.

Congrats to Amy and Kellie and salute to Nike as they look to improve both diversity and working conditions on campus.
