GUCCI HIRES GLOBAL HEAD OF DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION

Gucci has tapped Renée E. Tirado to be its head of diversity, equity and inclusion. This comes on the heels of the controversial issues the iconic Italian fashion house has been dealing with.

Notable Quotes: “Since 2015, Alessandro and I have worked to put culture — self-expression and inclusivity — at the center of what we do. I strongly believe diversity empowers creativity. All that we have accomplished has been driven by these values… This appointment is a fundamental building block to further our commitment and support the initiatives already in place. As a learning organization, we have challenged ourselves over the last few months to accelerate our vision to develop a stronger organization. I am confident that Renée will help us create the meaningful change we want to see not only in our company but in the fashion industry.” – Gucci president and CEO Marco Bizzarri
