Several civil rights leaders, including Reverend Jesse L. Jackson Sr. has called for equality in employment at Silicon Valley corporations and even made request for them to release information pertaining to it. So far, Apple has made the neccesary efforts to diversify their corporation and provide equality in employment based on race, gender, religion and etc. Twitter came under fire back in 2015 when a former engineer revealed his resignation from the company due to lack of diversity in employment, promotions, leadership positions and etc.
Since then, Twitter is dealing with the elephant in the room instead of sweeping it under the rug. The company recently hired a former Apple employee, who was actually a director at Apple and assisted with implementing a foundation for its improvement in diversity. Jeffrey Siminoff was basically recruited for his expertise and has taken on the role of vice president of diversity and inclusion at Twitter. Prior to that, the director of inclusion and diversity Janet Van Huysse resigned, although she presented an outline of how Twitter was going to make efforts to enhance diversity in 2016. Its unsure why Huysse resigned and abruptly left the company.
However, Jeffrey Siminoff will resolve Twitter's lack of diversity in all areas such as: race, gender, religion and etc., by admending solutions to enhance the company.
