Amazon.com Inc appointed Candi Castleberry Singleton, as vice president of global diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI).
Candi has more than two decades of experience aligning diversity and inclusion strategy with key business drivers, customer requirements, and organizational capability. Her DEI career arc runs the gamut from consumer-facing companies like Twitter and Motorola, to healthcare and business-to-business organizations, to academia, as she’s spent time at both the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Carnegie Mellon. She has created a number of workshops and authored several articles on leadership, employee and community engagement, diversity, and inclusion.
“When I think about Amazon and the potential for impact, I’m energized by the possibilities. This work will require us to engage all communities, think globally, and cultivate a workplace that is not only diverse, but also inspires a deep sense of belonging for every one of our employees. If we get this right, together we can create a greater sense of inclusion not only within Amazon, but for Amazon customers around the world. I can’t wait to get started.”
“Our DEI work is among the most important work we have ever done, and we are committed to building a more inclusive and diverse Amazon for the long term.” Said Beth Galetti, Senior Vice President, Amazon, “We have more work to do to achieve our goals, and I am excited to partner with Candi on this journey. I look forward to welcoming Candi to the team when she joins us this October.”
