The company not only has a problem accelerating women into leadership roles but also has a boys-club culture.
As Nike Inc. continues to fail in hiring and retaining women at leadership levels and grapples with the alleged sexist behavior of executives, Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion Antoine Andrews has left the company.
Employees received a memo that the company has failed to achieve change.
Nike Inc.'s HR Chief Monique Matheson informed employees on Wednesday that the company has failed in both promoting and hiring women and minorities to senior-level positions.
But this is not surprising as Nike's executive leadership team is predominantly white and male. Mark Parker, the company's chairman, president and CEO since 2006, apparently has not made diversity a priority.
