After a winter of scandals, fashion brands like Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana pledged to be less racist, creating new roles for people who could help them avoid costly blunders. Here, Ezinne Kwubiri, the newly appointed head of inclusion and diversity at H&M walks us through some of her typical duties towards making H&M a more inclusive place.

I’m in the office in New York. When I first walk in, I say “good morning” to everyone, and we have meetings to talk about our goals for the week to come. I sit closely with HR and most of these meetings start in the HR department. I try to get a sense of what’s going on in the company and the store, because the stores are open through the weekend. Is there anything to be concerned about there? I meet with the HR team, and also with the marketing and press teams to see if we have any engagements coming up.
