Today, Riot Games announced it is bringing on its first-ever Chief Diversity Officer. The move, likely prompted by accusations of misconduct, sexism, and racism at the highest levels of the company, was revealed on Twitter today via the Riot Games Careers account.

The new hire, Angela Roseboro, has been working in company diversity in one form or another for nearly two decades, with her last employer being Dropbox. In her position at Riot, she will "oversee all activity relating to diversity and inclusion (D&I), and lead the creation of new programs to foster a more inclusive culture". She'll also lead the recruiting team and report to the company's Chief People Officer.

Riot posted a formal announcement regarding Roseboro on the company site earlier today.

So... a useless job?

We have 2 comments so far - a general, welcome. And then we have the slippery slope.

Oh look, another useless position filled by an useless idiot because women always play the victim instead of working to get what they want.

Honestly, at this point. Simply ban women from working. All they do is complain and play the victim all the damn time. It's ridiculous.
