Report Reveals Diversity Concerns at Adidas

Prior to inking her highly touted new deal with Adidas, Beyoncé reportedly walked out of a meeting with competitor Reebok due to a lack of diversity on its pitch team. But as an investigative report by the New York Times revealed on Wednesday, Adidas seemingly has some major diversity issues of its own, as alleged by 20 current or former black employees who have worked on the Portland, Ore., campus known as “Adidas Village.”

Despite only comprising 4.5 percent of Adidas’ 1,700-member workforce in Portland—less than 75 members, the Times notes—several of the black employees anonymously interviewed claimed they’d been discouraged by their predominantly white leadership from forming even informal communities with their black colleagues—even against fraternizing during their lunch hour.AMIBC® - VOTE!
