Salesforce announced diversity and recruitment chief Tony Prophet's departure in an internal memo from Chief People Officer Brent Hyder this month, according to Business Insider.
A Salesforce spokesperson did not respond to request for comment.
Prophet experienced health issues in recent months and had taken a leave from work, sources previously told Protocol. In the memo, Hyder confirmed Prophet's medical leave. Lori Castillo Martinez, who has been leading Salesforce's equality efforts since he left, will continue to serve as interim head as the company searches for a permanent replacement, per the report. Nathalie Scardino will become executive vice president of global recruiting.
For years, employees have criticized Salesforce's equality efforts internally. It wasn't until earlier this year, however, that the unrest came under public scrutiny after two Black female leaders at the company posted resignation letters on LinkedIn alleging a culture of microaggressions and inequitable treatment.
