Anna Wintour Apologised For Vogue’s Lack Of Diversity And “Intolerant, Hurtful” Content

“I want to say plainly that I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate or give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators,” her letter to staff began. “We have made mistakes too, publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant. I want to take full responsibility for those mistakes.”

I want to say plainly that I know Vogue has not found enough ways to elevate and give space to Black editors, writers, photographers, designers and other creators. We have made mistakes too, publishing images or stories that have been hurtful or intolerant. I want to take full responsibility for those mistakes.

It can’t be easy to be a Black employee at Vogue, and there are too few of you. I know that it is not enough to say that we will do better, but we will — and please know that I value your voices and responses as we move forward. I am listening and would like to hear your feedback and your advice if you would like to share either.

I am proud of the content we have published on our site over these past few days but I also know that there is much more work to do. Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with me directly. I am arranging ways we can discuss these issues together candidly, but in the meantime, I welcome your thoughts or reactions.
