Twitter (NYSE:TWTR) has hired Jeffrey Siminoff as the company’s new vice president of diversity and inclusion.
According to an article on Tech Crunch:

Siminoff, who starts in January, seems like a great fit for this role. He’s joining Twitter from Apple, where he was the director of worldwide inclusion and diversity from September 2013 up until now, according to his LinkedIn profile. Before that, he led global diversity and inclusion efforts at Morgan Stanley for three years. He’s also one of the founding leaders of Out Leadership, a global LGBT leadership organization.
A new diversity boss could be good for Twitter, which has had pretty bad year around diversity and inclusion. Though, some people are raising their eyebrows around Siminoff’s hire because he’s a white man. But diversity is not simply a matter of black versus white. True diversity includes a variety of people of different racial backgrounds, genders, sexualities and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well people with disabilities and/or veterans.
