About Ellen McGirt

Fortune staff writer Ellen McGirt covers race and culture for the magazine, and has spent her 2017 spearheading their raceAhead newsletter, which “focuses on the experience of black, brown, Asian, and Native American people in corporate America.” She doesn’t limit her focus to business on social media, though, tackling issues of racial bias wherever she sees them—whether it’s in the corner office or the Oval Office. Her 35K+ Twitter followers look forward to reading her next thinkpiece, or engaging with the many articles she reposts from fellow journalists who seek equal representation for minority communities and—like her—point out the many hypocrisies that exist in today’s professional, political, and pop-cultural worlds.
