Apple’s first-ever vice president of diversity is leaving the company at the end of the year, TechCrunch reports.

Denise Young Smith, who joined Apple in 1997, became the tech giant’s vice president of diversity and inclusion in May. She was the company’s head of human resources before taking the diversity role.

Christie Smith, a 17-year veteran of consulting giant Deloitte, will be taking over the role, according to TechCrunch. Citing an unnamed source, TechCrunch reports that Young Smith had been discussing the next stage of her career and life with Apple CEO Tim Cook since roughly a year ago. The personnel change, it said, is a “planned departure.”

Young Smith was recently in the spotlight after comments she made at a conference in Bogota, Colombia, sparked controversy. “There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blonde men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation,” she said, according to Quartz.

With Apple looking to boost diversity among its workforce, the comments attracted criticism. Young Smith reportedly apologized for the comments in a memo to Apple staff.

According to a diversity report released by Apple earlier this month, the iPhone maker’s workforce is 32 percent female, the same figure as in 2016. Some 54 percent of Apple employees are white, compared to 56 percent in 2016. The company’s workforce is 21 percent Asian (up 2 percentage points on 2016), 9 percent black (the same as last year), 13 percent Hispanic (up 1 percentage point from 2016) and 3 percent multiracial (up 1 percentage point from last year).

She was fired because she thought "diversity" meant hiring people who "bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation" irrespective of gender, race, or sexuality.

How gauche.

We all know it means hiring a certain percentage of blacks, Asians, Hispanics, women, men, gays, Muslims, etc. to "look like America".

Can't find enough talented blacks, gays, women or Muslims? Tough shit. Hire those less qualified to fill those quotas diversity targets.

Bui, but Diversity is what made our nation what it is today. Enclaves of dirty, stinking welfare hos, drug dealers, muslim scumbags and taco crunching wetbacks.

If one believes this is a beautiful land in respect to our cities I would direct them to Detroit, et al. The ones that still retain some semblance of beauty, like San Fancisco, San Diego, Miami, are slowly eroding due to homosexuals, illegals, muslims, etc. Graffiti abounds.

Imagine, living in a country where the Empire State Building lit up this week in the colors of the LGBT gaggle to celebrate the day that Australians went to the polls and approved marriage between same sex-type perverts.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

vice president of diversity

If you could enter a time machine to go back to the even the 1960's and mentioned such a thing as a "VP for Diversity",people would slap you for being so freaking stupid.

Go back a couple of decades further,and they would put you in a looney bin.

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

And that is just flat-out crazy,even today.

The company’s workforce is 21 percent Asian (up 2 percentage points on 2016)

If you want cultural diversity what you want is cultivated educated Asians not Coons and Mexicans with jungle fever.

Imagine how these cultivated, educated Asians feel working next to Coons and Mexicans with jungle fever, knowing they're there because of quotas.

"The company’s workforce is 21 percent Asian"

You've heard of the "80-20 Rule"? 20% of employees do 80% of the work? I bet that true at Apple.

The very definition of "worthless job".

I wonder if any of the bright employees ever sat through her crap without just jumping on the web via cellphone and ignoring her?

That would be like Vice President of Random Numbers.

Wouldn't diversity come naturally? Select 1000 social security numbers -- wouldn't the people be diverse simply because of statistical distribution?

You don't need a highly paid Vice President to ensure randomness (ie., diversity). You do need a highly paid Vice President, however, to administer a quota system without it looking like a quota system.
