A lot of the news in the tech sector these days is about diversity.
But this time, the news is about Reddit’s diversity.
Reddit has hired its first women CEO in nearly a decade.
The news comes as CEO Ellen Pao is expected to resign at the end of the month amid claims that she discriminated against female employees.
In an interview with Recode, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian told Recode that “we’ve made many progress over the last few years in getting more women on our team.”
Reddit also hired its next CEO at the same time as Pao’s departure.
“We are still a company that has a lot to do to make our community more inclusive, more diverse, and more inclusive of all communities and groups,” Ohanian said.
The company also announced that its board has voted to expand its staff to 100 people, which will increase the number of women in leadership roles.
Reddit, which was founded in 2005, has since grown into one of the largest social media sites in the world, with more than 15 billion monthly users.
It’s also become the target of a number of sexual harassment and discrimination lawsuits.
Earlier this year, Reddit suspended moderators who allegedly posted sexually explicit images of women on the site.
