Today we’re announcing Christine Deputy as our new Chief People Officer at Pinterest. Christine will join Pinterest’s executive team and report directly to co-founder and CEO, Ben Silbermann.
As Chief People Officer, Christine will be responsible for all aspects of Pinterest’s human resources strategy, including talent management, leadership development, pay and benefits, and helping to ensure we fulfill our commitments to improving workplace culture.
“As we continue to build an innovative and diverse global company, we’re excited to have Christine join Pinterest,” said Ben Silbermann, co-founder and CEO at Pinterest. “Christine has a wealth of experience across a number of high-profile international brands and shares our vision for building a culture of collaboration, where all employees feel included and supported.”
Christine brings many years of HR experience leading teams at iconic brands like Nordstrom, Barclays and Starbucks. Most recently at Nordstrom, where she served as CHRO, Christine supported more than 70,000 employees, helping the company reach many milestones like achieving pay equity and pay parity and bringing diversity, inclusion and belonging into every part of the business.
“What attracted me to Pinterest was their mission of inspiration and passion for sharing creativity on the platform,” said Christine Deputy. “Bringing this same experience to life for Pinterest's 2,700 global employees and embracing diversity and inclusion across every aspect of the business will be a key part of my mission as Chief People Officer."
This week Pinterest also shared our 2020 Inclusion and Diversity report, which highlights the progress we've made on our journey to build a more inclusive and diverse company. In that report we noted that 50% of Pinterest’s global workforce are now female and that we’ve reached pay equity across genders and races in the U.S.
