Reddit co-founder quits to make room for new black board member

Published on June 6, 2020 by

The co-founder of social media site Reddit has resigned from the board and has called on the company to replace him with a black candidate.

His decision responded to the death of George Floyde which reignited the debate concerning the alleged lack of diversity in America’s corporate board rooms.

Alexis Ohanian, who is married to tennis legend Serena Williams, has also pledged almost 1.5 million dollars to the ‘Know Your Rights Camp,’ a not-for-profit organisation started by former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
