More than a dozen current or former employees at Amazon's corporate headquarters say they witnessed systematic disadvantages for Black and underrepresented workers, according to Recode. The tech news website quoted an Amazon diversity manager, who said: "We struggle to bring [Black] folks in because there's not a whole lot of desire, in my opinion, to go outside of our normal practices."Once inside the company, those employees sometimes had difficulty advancing, the manager told the outlet.Later this year, Andy Jassy will take over as chief executive at the retail giant, replacing founder Jeff Bezos. Jassy has spoken about diversity at the company previously, saying at a June 2020 event that the issue was "really important."
