Boulder to hire city’s first “diversity officer”

Boulder will choose from three finalists for the position of “diversity officer,” a new role the city created to increase diversity and inclusivity in its workforce.

The human resources position replaces that of “learning and development specialist,” which featured work in training with a partial focus on diversity, city spokeswoman Sarah Huntley said.

The finalists are May Snowden, a consultant and facilitator who once served as vice president for global diversity for Starbucks; Frederick Davis, who has held numerous roles related to diversity and also once worked for Starbucks, as a human resources manager for global diversity; and Renata Robinson, the former vice president for human resources with Teach for America. All three are people of color.
