There have been many stories about Facebook's whitewashed corporate culture and the lack of diversity in its ranks. Now, the woman who was hired to fix those issues, Anastasia Boone Talton, is herself suing the mega-corporation for discrimination.
Talton, who was hired by Facebook as a "senior talent acquisition specialist" focused on diversifying the company's workforce amid rising public criticism, is suing the company for $100 million. According to court documents filed by Talton and obtained by the Daily Mail, "the complaint for damages accuses Facebook of eight offenses including discrimination and harassment, failure to accommodate her disability, retaliation, wrongful termination and breach of contract. She has requested a trial by jury.”
