Anna Wintour And Edward Enninful Promoted By Condé Nast
Bad and good news for diversity.
Anna Wintour, artistic director and editor-in-chief of American Vogue, has been promoted to the role of chief content officer at Condé Nast. The promotion means that she will oversee the content for almost all publications owned by the global media company, including Vogue, GQ and Vanity Fair.
Her promotion seems controversial, in the light of criticism she received after her conformist involvement in the Black Lives Matter movement this year. Her apology for lack of diversity at Vogue and Black creators, in particular, sounded hypocritical when contrasted with the accounts of both overt and subtle racism from her former employees.
On the other hand, Edward Enninful, the editor-in-chief of British Vogue and its first Black editor-in-chief in general, has been promoted as its European editorial director. He will oversee the content for editions of Vogue in France, Germany, Spain, Italy and the UK.
