Pinterest keeps working on diversity and inclusion – What is new?
News you want to use week 5.
Last April, Pinterest began testing a search feature that allows users to filter results by skin tone. The idea being that those looking for beauty tips will be able to find relevant makeup and hair advice, regardless of their race. Today, the company is announcing that this feature will roll out more broadly across its user base. Not only is it a particularly useful feature, it’s also emblematic of Pinterest’s ever-growing efforts at increasing the diversity and inclusion within the company. In fact, Pinterest outright said that the skin tone search feature is a direct result of the Diversity and Inclusion team working closely with the technical and engineering teams within the company.
