In a brand new role for H&M, the retail company has appointedEzinne Kwubiri as the Head of Inclusion and Diversity for North America.
The appointment comes less than a year after H&M faced backlash for its racially and culturally insensitive marketing image featuring a young Black boy wearing one of its "Coolest Monkey in the Jungle" hoodies. Since then, the Swedish retail giant has hired a Global Diversity Leader and now a Head of Inclusion and Diversity, North America in an effort to increase diversity and authentic representation in all areas of its business.
Kwubiri's new role includes working closely with the company's Global Head of Inclusivity and Diversity, Annie Wu, and leading H&M's new diversity initiatives.
