Mozilla Releases Diversity Statement After Appointing Allegedly Anti-Gay CEO
Mozilla released a "Statement on Diversity" on Tuesday evening, presumably in response to uproar over the company's appointment of Brendan Eich, a Proposition 8 donor, as its CEO.
The company makes no direct reference to Eich or the boycott announced by two married, gay Firefox developers Hampton Catlin and his husband Michael.
Mozilla has always been deeply committed to honoring diversity in sexual orientation and beliefs within our staff and community, across all the project’s activities. One concrete example of this is in our health benefit policies. Mozilla provides the same level of benefits and advantages to domestic partners as we do to married couples across the United States, even in states where it is not mandated. For those who choose life insurance, voluntary spouse coverage extends to domestic partners, including same-sex couples. With thousands of people spanning many countries and cultures, diversity is core to who we are, and we’re united in our mission to keep the Web open and accessible for everyone.
What do you think of Mozilla's statement, Instincters? Is it enough? Is it necessary?
