Alongside the announcement of the Secret Lair: Black Is Magic drop, Wizards of the Coast revealed that it had hired Jontelle Leyson-Smith as their Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

“My mission is to incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion into our company culture, processes, and products,” Leyson-Smith said. “All journeys include (among many things) historical contexts to understand, challenges to overcome, and plans for a brighter future…and I’m excited to begin on that journey.”

“We’re hard at work strategizing, building, and executing programs and change across our company,” she continued. “This includes products to cultivate meaningful progress at Wizards of the Coast toward better diversity, equity, and inclusion. I look forward to sharing our efforts very soon—please stay tuned.”

According to her LinkedIn, Leyson-Smith was hired last December. She previously worked as the Diversity Program Manager, Global Product and Software Engineering Recruiting at Facebook.
