Anna Wintour Will Not Be Leaving 'Vogue' or Conde Nast Amid Diversity Scandal

Anna Wintour Will Not Be Leaving 'Vogue' or Conde Nast Amid Diversity Scandal

Anna Wintour has been at the middle of a diversity scandal at Conde Nast, where she serves as the publishing brand’s chief creative officer.

The 70-year-old media mogul, who is also the editor-in-chief at Vogue, admitted to “hurtful and intolerant behavior” at the magazine. (You can read what she wrote in her letter to employees here)

Anna reportedly called a meeting with employees on Friday (June 12) and talked about the “actionable changes” that will be made at Conde Nast. The company’s CEO Roger Lynch then held a town hall meeting that Anna was not part of and he talked about her future with the brand, according to Page Six.

There has been speculation about Anna‘s job status and some people have been calling for her to resign. Speaking to rumors that she would be ousted from her job, Lynch reportedly told employees, “There’s no truth to that.”

“The first thing they addressed was Anna’s possible departure. Dannielle Carrig from comms called the reports of her departure a ‘strategic distraction,’” a source told Page Six. “But someone else said, ‘This is what everyone is asking and wanting to know – Why isn’t Anna leaving? Do you endorse her behavior? It’s not just one statement. It’s the way she lives and has always led this organization. A movie was made about her behavior and it was applauded, she did not learn, she has not changed. I find it insulting that you are saying she has learned and changed her behavior’.”

Lynch reportedly said that Wintour will remain on a diversity committee at the company. He said, “I think she can be an incredibly positive force for change. Like I said earlier: Many of us can look back at our history and think of things we should’ve done differently.”

Vogue‘s former creative director Andre Leon Talley recently opened up about his icy relationship with Anna.
