Hillary Clinton tapped her director of human resources to take on the additional role of chief diversity officer as she competes to win the vote of people of color. So reports Huffington Post.
Bernard Coleman, 36, says he is the first person to hold such a role by a presidential campaign. The African American also performed in a similar role when he was human resources director for the Democratic National Committee for six years.
Inclusv, a group that helps political campaigns find diverse candidates, provided data to Huffington Postshowing that 30% of Clinton’s 700 campaign staff is non-white and 52% are women. Among senior leadership, women comprised 54% and people of color comprised 34%.
“We want to have the most representative staff,” Coleman said. “We’re always trying to crush it.”
